They say it takes a village to raise a child.  In the same way, it takes a community to put on a production.  Over the next couple of weeks, Artists at Play will be working on building sets, hanging lights, painting the stage and loading everything into the theatre, and we could use your help!  If you have the time, tools or talents, we can certainly use them.  Check out our LABOR and MATERIAL needs below to see how you can help.  Then contact us at to let us know when and how you can help, and we’ll get in touch with you!  Lunch and dinner will often be provided.

We’ll be painting the set on these days!  Get your paint clothes on, grab a brush and stop by as we create our rustic barn setting.  Bring your mp3 players and we’ll hook up your favorite music to our radio.

We’re looking for a low-cost scrim, either rented or purchase.  Any suggestions?

Anyone have a rustic looking bow and arrow?  Hopefully an arrow that’s already been made stage safe or can be made stage safe.

We’re looking to borrow or rent a dimmer pack for a low-cost.  Any leads?
