Is transportation an issue? In recent years, LC Bird Theatre parents have been successful in organizing a carpool rotation! Indicate your needs on the audition form and we will put you in touch with each other!
Are you good with a sewing machine, paint brush, or power tools? Do you have any other special skill that might help? Parent volunteers are welcome and encouraged!
