Merry Christmas OBT families!! Can you believe that the Nutcracker is over? We had a wonderful run this season! Thank you to all the volunteers for your hard work and dedication to make this Nutcracker wonderful. We could not have done this without all your support! I have a final plea seeking volunteers that can assist us with the striking of the OTC Stage tomorrow. We will do two (2) runs to the Berman Academy to off-load the stage set and props. If we are able to get a turnout of volunteers, the strike will go much faster and easier. Last week I communicated we will meet at 10:30am. I will be there around 9:30am to start disassembling the dressing booths/cubbies. If anyone is available to start earlier, feel free to join me. :-) If you have any questions please email: smongkol06@gmail.com Thank you and wishing you and your families a wonderful Christmas!! Sonny

Hello OBT Families! We have had a fantastic run of the Nutcracker so far this year! We are down to 8 performances and the final weekend! It's that time again where we are calling for volunteers to help with the strike of the stage at the Olney Theatre Center. Help the team take down the Nutcracker set. ** Please note: Heavy lifting and physical activities are required.** - We will need "all hands on deck" Thursday December 26th starting at 10:30AM. - Volunteers will meet at the OTC Historic Stage. We will disassemble and move all set pieces (i.e., dressing rooms, candy canes, cane fan,marley floors, tree, scrims, clock, etc..) to the Berman Acadamy 13300 Arctic Ave, Rockville MD 20853. - We will be doing two (2) truck load runs from OTC to the Berman Acadamy. We had a good turnout for the "load-in" in November. If we can get a large group of volunteers that can dedicate several hours to a full day on Thursday 12/26, we should be to able to complete the strike in one day. Volunteers can sign up to assist using the following SignUp Genius link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F45A5A62BA5FD0-20191 For any questions, please contact; - Sonny Mongkol: smongkol06@gmail.com - Royal Dellinger: royal.dellinger@gmail.com

Hello All! For those who are planning to assist us this weekend, the Olney Theatre Center (OTC) has requested that we do not park in the Theatre parking lot(s) this weekend. OTC has matinee performances in two theaters both Saturday and Sunday. We have been asked to start parking at Good Counsel's parking lot (across the street). We are really in need of volunteers who can spare a few or more hours this weekend. If we have a large turnout of volunteers, we will be able to get many tasks completed. SignUpGenius Link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f45a5a62ba5fd0-2019 Thanks! Sonny

Calling for volunteers to help with the Load-In to the Olney Theatre Center's (OTC) Historic Stage. Help load-in and build the Nutcracker set. This is a great opportunity for people who like to work with their hands, work in teams and build things! ** Please note: Heavy lifting and physical activities are required ** - We will need volunteers starting Friday November 29th at 9:00AM. - Volunteers will meet at Berman Academy 13300 Arctic Ave, Rockville MD 20853 to load moving truck. Meet on the backside of the Academy, we will have the garage door open and you will see a rental truck parked. - If you are unable to meet us at the Berman Academy at 9:00AM and can assist later in the day, please feel free to meet and help us at OTC. Our estimated arrival time at OTC, should be around 10:30AM - 11:00AM. If we can get a large crew that can dedicate several hours, we will be able to accomplish the tasks quicker. Planned Activities: - Friday (11/29/19) starting at 9:00AM, we will load the moving truck at Berman and then off-load the truck at OTC. - Saturday (11/30/19) starting at 10:00AM, we will meet at OTC to do the hang, and all the heavy work. Depending on what does not get completed Saturday, volunteers would be needed on Sunday afternoon. - Sunday (12/01/19) starting at 1:30PM, we will finish any remaining tasks that did not get completed (i.e., assemble/build dressing booths). Note: The dates and times are subject to revision. Any updates/changes will be communicated and also posted on the OBT message board. We would love to have volunteers available for three (3) full days if needed! To volunteer for the Load-In, please click on this SignUp Genius Link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F45A5A62BA5FD0-2019 If you have any questions, please email Sonny Mongkol (smongkol06@gmail.com) Thank you!!
