HST looking to borrow chairs

Dear Understanding HST Parents,
We have some chair needs:
– *TRAVEL TROUPE* could use some barstool chairs with backs to them. If you own some & could bring THIS Friday to Redland Baptist or to FSF Theater on Saturday (March 23) between 10 and Noon -* please reply!* – *JUNIOR TROUPE* we need nine rolling computer chairs – low back. We’d ideally like to have families bring them to Redland Baptist each Friday, until the last Friday rehearsal (April 12) when we either keep them through show week (or you could bring them to FSF Theater on April 22. If you own such a chair and would be willing to help us out -* please reply* !
Many thanks! Blessings, Marilyn

HST Needs Load In/Out Help

Dear Understanding HST Families,
Time for more begging. We need some more people to help with Load-Ins and Load-outs. This is a job where many hands make a HUGE difference! It’s also a great job for Dad’s to jump in and get to know some of the other amazing fathers in HST.
Please take a look at the Sign-Up Genius to see if you could go a little above & beyond. www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0549aea72ca1fa7-transport
Thank You! Blessings, Marilyn

Please edit your character names

Dear Understanding Travel Troupe,
Please check the attached sheet so we can be sure to get your character names correct on the placemat (since I know there are some errors in the HST program, which doesn’t come out until after your show, but I do feel badly that your year’s momento won’t be 100% correct on character names).
Mrs. Stell put this sheet together (be sure to thank her!). It will be the back of your placemat – which THS will flip over for people once Delilah starts “decorating” for the party. We’re still working on the front of the placemat which is about the Comedy Club.
Blessings, Mrs. Mullan
