We love our volunteers--on stage and off. There is a lot of work that goes into putting on a show like Joseph and the Amazing Techincolor Dreamcoat. Set building, lights, sound, props, actors, cleaning, ushers, receptions, concessions, box office, lobby, production assistants, parents, phones - hats off to everyone who had a part. Success!
