The Middle School Production of Willy Wonka, Jr is only successful with the help of parent volunteers. We will need each parent to volunteer for set building, green room, concessions, backstage, ticket sales, poster distribution, and marketing. At the time there is not an active Booster Board to coordinate many of the extras that make the Tahoma Middle School Drama Productions so amazing. If you would like to see the program continue with the same past quality, please contact tahomajrdramaboosters@gmail.com to volunteer to continue this amazing program.
