Whistle While You Work

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to an ASPI work day we go!

While our productions may be currently on hold, there is no shortage of maintenance, projects, and tasks to be done around the theater. We need your help to make sure the theater is up and ready to go for when our next season of shows begin.

We are having a socially distanced work day at the theater on Saturday, August 15, along with outside projects that can be done during the week and we need all hands on deck! From yard work to housekeeping, we have a job for you. Check out our other article: Work Day August 15, 2020 – Things To Do.

This work day is being organized by none other than ASPI veteran David Jolly, who eloquently shares why these work days are crucial to the ongoing success of the theater, especially in these unprecedented times.

“Our operations at ASPI were greatly affected by Covid-19. We were in our tech week for My Fair Lady in March when all activity had to be halted in response to the pandemic. All though all those associated with ASPI have had varying personal impacts, all of our lives have been rearranged and we must now consider the importance of various ‘non-essential’ activities and their place in our lives. ASPI will only continue to exist if many of its family members recommit to the necessary time and effort it takes to keep it going. Workdays are essential to the housekeeping tasks that must have volunteer support to be accomplished. Our upcoming workdays will be one of the first opportunities we have taken to see where we are at, in terms of ‘family’ or ‘community’ support. We will work together at this event to be protective of one another’s health while accomplishing some needed tasks.”

If you’re free Saturday, August 15th, stop by the theater between 9am-3pm! Whether it’s for a two hour time slot, or more, any amount of time can be accommodated. Please bring gloves, a mask, and some form of eye protection. Other equipment that would be greatly appreciated include: 2 string trimmers, 1 to 3 chainsaws (battery or gas powered), and 2 wheelbarrows.

We are planning to host these work days monthly so be sure to follow us on Facebook and stay tuned for future dates!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the theater at (920) 826-5852.
