Become an ambassador for Seattle Musical Theatre

October 15th, 2016 by Support Staff

Seattle Musical Theatre is looking for volunteers:

With all of the entertainment options out there, combined with experiencing many of them in the comfort of your own home, it becomes more and more of a challenge to engage today’s audiences in the power of a live theatrical experience. However, we at SMT know the secret to our success- You, or Patrons! Without your support, feedback, and desire to come and support the offerings we share with you, we would not be here for our 39th season! It’s your passion for musical theatre that spreads throughout the community and allows for us to have the opportunity to introduce new generations to this truly unique style of theatre!

We want to ask for your support again by inviting YOU to be a part of our new volunteer program, the SMT Ambassadors! Our Ambassadors are willing and desiring to share the message and culture of SMT with their family, friends, co-workers; basically, all those that they encounter in their travels throughout our community. Do you enjoy talking about theatre? About musicals? Do you like to share your opinion on shows? On what we are doing here at SMT? On what we are working to become in the future? Then, the SMT Ambassadors are for you! We will provide you with the tools you need to share our information, spread our culture, and ignite the passion for musical theatre in new audience members!

We are asking interested Ambassadors to contact our Volunteer Program Manager, Gayle Hunsberger. Gayle will give you additional information, as well as feedback on what you can do to help us spread the word about SMT to our community!

Every parent dreads their child getting sick; it means missing work and school and, more drastically, requiring a visit to the doctor. Worst of all, it may mean that your whole family winds up getting sick. Luckily, I have some prevention tips to help keep you and your children healthy this cold and flu season.

Cold vs. Flu

First, a little refresher. Colds and flu are caused by viruses, not bacteria. There are hundreds of different viruses that cause colds; flu is caused by the influenza virus. Antibiotics won
