2019 STAGE MOM CREW OPPORTUNITY

CALLING ALL KJ SUPER MOMMAS! WE NEED YOU BACKSTAGE THIS YEAR!


Why are stage moms a necessity to the concert?

Each class MUST have at least one Stage Mom for the students to be properly chaperoned during the performance. Being a KJ Stage Mom is an extremely rewarding experience for the mom as well as an exceptional way to support your child and her classmates. Volunteering is a fun way to help with the concert and share each moment of event excitement with your student. Stage Moms will be accepted on a first-come basis. Combined classes and large classes will need two stage moms. The link to sign up is found below!


Stage Mom duties include:

· Help relay information to other parents in the class and answer their questions when possible.

· Help with your class at dress rehearsal. PERK!!! While the students are on stage rehearsing the stage mom can video or take photos from the front row. Stage Moms will watch from the stage wings at the concert performance.

· Help with your class backstage during the concert performance. This includes overseeing your class for the entire show, helping them on and off stage, and monitoring your class when they are not performing.


If you have questions about our STAGE MOM CREW please call the Plano office 972.473.4017 or the Frisco office 214.469.1770.
