Parent Information

Every Gresham High School parent
"plays a part" in our productions!


Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to be a part of the magic of our theatre??? Whatever your interests, we have a volunteer job for you!!! Work with the director in any of the following areas either as a Coordinator or an Assistant.

When you become an adult volunteer and share your skills and time you enrich young people’s lives. Every adult has something valuable to offer and your time and effort is needed and appreciated! The success of every Gresham High School show relies heavily on contributions made by our parents. Whether it is sewing costumes, gathering props, painting or building sets, applying an actor’s makeup, running errands, working the ticket booth or helping in the lobby, we count on every parent to play a part. Our productions would not happen without the wonderful volunteers!

Volunteering is also a good way to bond with your own child and help set them on a path towards a fulfilling cultured life. We’re confident you’ll find the experience to be rewarding and fulfilling, and your efforts will help build a better future for everyone.
