Production team required for spring play to move forward!

The 2017 Play Committee is in need of volunteers to fill 2-4 Production Team Lead roles. Bryant has a great long standing history with the 4th and 5th grade play. We need to fill these roles by November 1st(preferably sooner) in order to move forward with producing this year’s play in its current form.

Although the Play Committee has had a lot of interest regarding volunteering for the play, we are still in need of other parents to make a complete Production Team.  Be assured if you volunteer you will have support from many others, including Senior Advisors from previous years’ production team. Even if you can only be available one consistent day a week, please email us and let us know of your interest.

 ****Please contact the Play Committee at bryantschoolplay@gmail.com to express interest in being a Production Team Lead****

Our Production Team Lead Role Description includes:

  • Person (or a 2 person team) to attend all play rehearsals per cast (1-2 people Cast A , 1-2 people Cast B)  January 3- performances March 23- 25. Ensure rehearsals run smoothly in regards to cast attendance, cast participation and attention.  There are 2 rehearsals per cast from 2:15 -4:15.
  • Coordinate with Lathyrus Theater group staff (director, assistant director, technical director etc). Attend evening production meeting once week during play rehearsals.
  • Work with the many other volunteers that are on board to help to make sure their work is going smoothly. (We have a Volunteer Coordinator whose role is to assist in managing volunteers).
  • Take care of or delegate production details that arise.
  • Attend and oversee performances.
  • Enjoy a tremendous, truly rewarding experience of a lifetime with these kids!

Bryant play planning is underway: We want you!

Do you have a 4th or 5th grade budding actor/actress or a child who likes to build and create? Then you should attend our upcoming 2017 Bryant Play Committee meeting. It will be held in the Bryant Library on Thursday October 13th at 7 p.m.

We are in our planning stages for this spring’s play. We are in need of volunteers to fill several leadership roles and supporting roles. Volunteering with the play is very rewarding and it takes many hands to produce. We simply can’t pull off the play without strong parental support. Be a part of the committee or fill a coordination role. We meet approximately once per month up to January when rehearsals begin. The focus increases as we get closer to the performances in March. We are so lucky to have such great talented kids in our school. Come be a part of shaping this long standing Bryant tradition!
