programs in local schools. To find the guild closest to you, and for information

VOLUNTEER ON STAGE & BEHIND THE SCENES
Longing for your stage debut? Don't wait any longer! Most opera productions
need non-singing extras called supernumeraries as well as backstage help.
Contact Diane Hines, Production Coordinator, at (412) 281-0912 x221 for
information and an application. For those interested in a less public
role, we often need help in the office and in the community. For more
information, contact Carol Brinjak at (412) 281-0912 x229.
