|Spring Paint & Pound Event is April 17 at The Theatre in the Park|
Members of the public are invited to help The Theatre in the Park get its facility ready for its summer season during a Paint & Pound Workday set for Saturday, April 17.
The workday will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Theatre, located in Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road. Participants will receive lunch for their efforts. No advance registration required. Individuals are invited to show up and bring gloves and cleaning supplies.
After being packed away for the winter, a variety of work needs to be done to get the community theater ready for its summer season of musicals. Theatre in the Park Producer Mike Musick said this includes everything from bringing out electronic sound and lighting equipment, to light paining and repair work to preparing everything from flower beds to dressing rooms.
The Theatre's 2004 season begins June 11 with a production of The Sound of Music. Other shows to be presented during the Theatre's 35th season includes: Wizard of Oz, Crazy For You, and Guys & Dolls.
