We depend on our volunteers,, our audience, our community to help us make the magic. Opening weekend is the perfect time to spotlight three amazing volunteers who have dedicated their time and passion generously to making South Pacific and YMTC a success!
Rene and Wendy Ponder (parents of YMTC company member Samuel Ponder)
Rene and Wendy have become central and beloved YMTC community volunteers behind the scenes (where Rene works alongside our technical director building sets) and in the front of the house, where you will find Rene and Wendy serving as Lead Ushers during performances. They assure that every audience member is welcomed and comfortable. Their generosity of spirit is infectious. Huge thanks to them both!
Kathy Rogers (parent of YMTC company members Caelan and Gabe Wilkie-Rogers)
Kathy has spent countless hours offering her services and those of her design firm, Sogno Design Group, to the creation of a new home and YMTC youth arts campus in Aquatic Park. One of our biggest cheerleaders, we so appreciate Kathy's many talents and her willingness to dedicate them to YMTC's student experience!
