PYT Needs Help Tues., Dec. 7th / Wed., Dec. 8th

Preparing PaperHand Puppet Gym/Studio  for "High School Musical" Performances

     Pittsboro Youth Theater needs a few capable volunteers to work at PaperHand's facility on Tuesday, Dec. 7th or Wednesday the 8th from 5 'til 8pm to help move puppets, clean up the old gym floor, and generally spruce up the fantastic place for our shows next weekend. It'll be something volunteers will never forget–not the kind of thing a person does everyday! If you're interested in helping fix up PaperHand's gym/studio for PYT's "High School Musical" performances, please send an email to; be sure to mention if you're available Tuesday, Dec. 7th or Wednesday, Dec.8th from 5pm-8pm in your email.

     The astounding venue for Pittsboro Youth Theater's premiere musical performances of the season, "High School Musical", will be worth the price of admission by itself. We have rented the repurposed school gymnasium that is PaperHand Puppets' studio and warehouse in Saxapahaw, NC for our 8 "High School Musical" performances, Saturdays and Sundays, Dec. 11-19. Anyone who has never been to PaperHand Puppet's facility in Saxapahaw, and that's most people, will be in for a real treat. PaperHand Puppets has a rich and long history making astoundingly huge and wonderful paper mache masks and figures. Their September performances in Chapel Hill have been very popular for decades. They were invited to perform in the White House for the President. Their full-size gym in Saxapahaw is where all the puppets and theatrical sets from decades of performances are created and stored.
