A Bit More information
Any parent can become involved in the Association. It is not necessary for your students to have leadership positions in the company. The Leadership Team’s parents ARE NOT required to be the leaders of the Parent’s Association.
It takes a lot to put on a show. Many people ask why we fundraise, why we need a fee, why can't we just support ourselves via ticket sales, why do we need the support of every parent?
If the cost of a cast or crew fee, tech week meal fee, festival, or other expense required for CHStage participation presents a financial hardship, please contact Michelle Meyer. Financial assistance may be available through a fund provided by our Supporting Cast Foundation. A short Application for Financial Assistance form is located under the "More" tab, then "Forms". Turn in completed forms to the Director at Michelle_L_Meyer@mcpsmd.org. All information will be kept confidential.
