Friends of Theatre

Who are the Friends of Theatre?

The Friends of Theatre is an all-volunteer, parent-run group whose purpose is to support the Theatre Arts Department.  Everyone is welcome.  There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.  Most jobs take only 1 to 1 ½ hours.

What do the Friends of Theatre do?

  • Manage Online, Box Office and Lunchtime Ticket Sales
  • Run Concessions before performances and during intermission
  • Offer “Break-a-leg Grams” to deliver to your favorite performers during shows
  • Plan Rehearsal Dinners and Cast Parties
  • Host the Cappies Dinner
  • Coordinate printing of Programs
  • Solicit Program advertisements from local businesses
  • Promote events via local print and electronic media
  • Assist with costumes and set builds
  • Help with Fundraising events
  • Maintain SLHS Theatre Arts website

If your hectic schedule leaves you with no time to volunteer, you can still show your support with a monetary donation.  The costs to print Show Programs, host the Cappies Dinner and provide rehearsal dinners exceed $2000 per year, which is paid 100% with monies earned by small fundraising efforts and your generous donations.

Please send your donation in the form of a check payable to “SLHS”. Your child can deliver the check directly to Mrs. Harris or the check can be mailed to:

South Lakes High School
Attn: Maria Harris
