Theatre 29 Holds Open House For Backstage Volunteers


In addition to the many volunteers that appear on the theatre 29 stage in various comedies. Dramas, and musicals, there is a hard working cadre behind the scenes.

Theatre 29 will be holding a special open house event looking for those who would like to help building sets and props, costuming, helping change sets backstage, running sound and lights, and more.

Theatre 29 President Brian Tabeling said, „We often get calls from volunteers who want to help backstage and this is a chance to gather those potential volunteers, explain them what exactly what is done and assign them to specific Directors and shows‰. Theatre 29 has an ambitious nine show schedule for 2012.

Anyone wishing to help the all volunteer Community Theater Organization backstage is asked to meet at the Theatre 29 building, 73637 Sullivan Road (around the corner from Barr Lumber) in Twentynine Palms Monday, January 16th, at 6:00 p.m.. Auditions for „Lost in Yonkers‰ are also being held that same evening in another area of the theater.

Veteran Theater 29 backstage technicians, lighting and sound experts, set builders, and Directors will be on hand to welcome the new backstage volunteers and give them an orientation on how the theatre process works.

All ages are welcome, Tabeling said, „If you ever thought it might be fun to help out painting and building sets and helping with shows, but did not want to actually be on stage, this is a great volunteer opportunity to work with a fun and dedicated group of people.‰
