Special PTA Play opportunity to volunteer! The production team is looking for volunteers to help costume our production of Little Mermaid. We are striving to find many people to take smaller portions of this immense project. Instead of asking one or two people to develop 200 costumes, we are looking for people to tackle working on one costume project. There are many leads costume projects to helping out with one ensemble project. Volunteers will be working closely with the directorial team who will be helping out with design and ideas. Costuming is a fun and creative way to help support our fundraiser and our schools.
