There is no way the Department can be as successful as we are without our parents and we love them!
Being a part of the program is a big commitment for the whole family. Many of our students travel across the county (and some from across the bay) for professional actor and technical training at Blake. That same commitment is shared by the faculty and administration who spend hundreds of volunteer hours each year to ensure an award-winning program.
We expect each family to fill at least one volunteer commitment each year. Many of these are low hassle, low time commitment opportunities. The easiest way to fill these commitments is to register at our Welcome Back picnic each year. You can also visit our volunteer page which contains all the links you need for easy sign up. You can always sign up for more than one opportunity!
While is it understood that not everyone has the same availability to volunteer, it is important that every family contributes to the program. Your support not only allows us to offer more in the way of programs and productions, it is also a clear signal to your student that you support their dreams as they make their way in a tough and sometimes frustrating career.
Areas where you can volunteer include:
- Ticket Booth
- Set up
- Clean up
- and more!
Another way to support our programs is to become a Booster. There are various Booster levels available starting at $75. Each membership comes with discounted or free tickets (depending on your sponsorship level) and discounts on the purchase of advertisements and shirts. For more information on memberships / sponsorships, click here.
Booster meetings are held once each quarter. They are an excellent way to get to know other families in the program in a social atmosphere, find out how you can be involved, stay informed, and get answers to any questions.
