Friends of the Village Players!
We need volunteers for our summer show, closing out our 70th season: EPIC PROPORTIONS!
When History of the World meets Monty Python style comedy, you know it’s gonna be good!
Set in the 1930s, Epic Proportions is the story of Benny and Phil, two bumbling brothers working as extras on the set of the Biblical film Exeunt Omnes.
The brothers’ fight for screen time pales only to their battle for the heart of assistant director, Louise Goldman. It is a TORRID LOVE TRIANGLE sparking an affair you’ll remember as long as you live! Filled with all the FIRE and FURY borne of frustrated film extras trapped in the Arizona desert with limited restroom facilities!
Written by Larry Coen and David Crane, the summer show for our 70th season is directed by Gina Lutz (She Kills Monsters, Les Liasons Dangereuses, A or B?), assisted by Richard Lutz, and produced by Richard Lutz.
Show dates are August 4, 5, 11 & 12 at 8pm. There will also be a Sunday matinees held on August 6th at 2pm.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
We will need up to 5 people per show (2 for lobby/concessions, 1 for 50/50, and 2 for Box Office). No experience is necessary for most positions; we will let you know what you need to do if you volunteer. Please arrive one hour before showtime.
Here are the basic descriptions of your responsibilities should you wish to volunteer.
If you’ve never volunteered before, ask anyone backstage to point you towards the stage manager. They can get you started on your first duty of preparing the coffee. Otherwise, feel free to get started on your own. The coffee should be ready by 7:30/1:30 when doors open. You will be given programs to hand out to the audience as they enter the theater.
You should be in the lobby as doors open to the public. You should actively engage with our patrons and encourage them to purchase 50/50 tickets. They, of course, have a chance to win half the pot. The other half is always appreciated and goes to very good use in helping maintain our theater. During intermission, you will do the same in the lobby and then also walk around to all the seats for one last attempt before picking the winning ticket at the end of intermission.
You will be responsible for receiving payment and handing out tickets.
