Nutcracker Volunteers Needed
Posted 9/19/22

Hello 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Families,

As you know, Laurelwood will be holding auditions this week for The Nutcracker musical. We are currently looking to fill two volunteer positions that are crucial to our ability to put on the show. We are in need of a Hair and Make-Up Coordinator and a dance director for Russian Bakers. This show is run entirely by parent volunteers so we can't do it without your help.

The Hair and Make-Up Coordinator makes sure that we have all of the necessary items for each group of dancers and for our actors. There are makeup templates and a list of the needed items so there is no guesswork involved. This volunteer also sets up the hair and makeup station for the evening shows and helps volunteers get what they need as they prepare our performers. 

Russian Bakers is a dance about baking sweet treats. You hold rehearsals one day a week, either during lunch recess or after school. We can provide you with a video to watch so you can familiarize yourself with the routine but prior dance experience of any kind is not required. It's a fun way to be involved and watching the kids perform on stage is extremely exciting and rewarding. 

If you are interested in either of these volunteer opportunities, or if you'd like additional information, please email

Thank you!
