Parents!  We Need You!

Parent involvement is a huge part of Port Summer Show…we’re like a big co-op!  We need parents from the cast, crew and pit to volunteer to chair or co-chair committees and sign up as committee volunteers.

Some of our committees include: Fundraising, Parent Liaison, Hair & Makeup, Props, Sets, Playbill, Raffles, Cast Party and Car Wash/Tag Sale (one of our fundraising activities.)

In addition, we require each family to:

  • Attend the parent meeting in June (and in January/March if you're available).
  • Sign a contract committing your child to our strict rehearsal schedule.  Please Note:  The directors have only 5 weeks to put together a high caliber musical. Cast members must attend all rehearsals for which they are called. Attendance will be taken. If your child misses a rehearsal that they are called for, they will be removed from that number.  Everyone will be given a link to a page on our website. The weekly rehearsal schedule will be posted there each Sunday evening. Your child is responsible for knowing if they are called for the next rehearsal.
  • Provide a parent or guardian to chaperone for one night of rehearsals and bring snack and beverages for the cast, crew and pit that night.
  • Make a donation of snacks and drinks to sell at our concession stand during the run of the show.
  • Be responsible for getting three business ads for the Playbill.  A sign-up list of list of local business will be provided at (or before) the parent meeting.  It's a lot easier than it seems!
  • Pay a fee for their child's participation.
