MG Silverstage 2019 Parent Volunteer Sign-Up
All MG Show Choir and Show Band families will be required to sign up to work (2) four-hour shifts at Silverstage.
We really need all hands on deck for this event - it is the single biggest thing we do all year. Please take a look at the sign up sheet and see what works for you and your family. Each 4 hour shift receives free entry into Silver Stage all day.
Both Connection and Dimension will be performing at our competition and each student will be a part of our hosting staff. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to be a part of Silver Stage and meet new students from other schools.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to talk with me. This is a fun day, folks. It is long, but it is a lot of fun and has been so successful in the past. I am looking forward to yet another wonderful year!!
