A special thank you to our Youth Outreach volunteers!

I write a lot about our Skinny’s Gallery program, and the wonderful stories and thank you notes that come from non-profits that work with low-income youth who come to our theatre for free.  However, I wanted to take the time to thank some people who help make this program happen.  In the picture above are the Paramount’s Skinny’s Gallery volunteers: Cesca Judge, Deborah Kirk, and Narda Hurt.  These three women volunteer their time and energy to make sure that all children have a chance to experience the wonderful things the Paramount Theatre has to offer.

They not only help me work with over forty non-profits to give away free tickets to our entire season, they also volunteer their time to do much more.  This past year they helped me drive teenagers for my youth theatre tour, assisted with pre-show activities for our shows, helped with the auditions for Literacy to Life, went to festivals to hand out two for one tickets for our family programming, and helped me find new schools to get involved in our programming.

Many children from all over Austin benefit from their support, and we are lucky to have them as part of our team.
