Volunteers wanted at Lime Kiln

Item by Chris Graham

Lime Kiln Arts wants … you.

The nonprofit will be holding its annual volunteer drive at the Theater at Lime Kiln in Lexington on Tuesday from 5-7:30 p.m.

“Our FOLK, the Friends of Lime Kiln, make the operation work,” theater executive director Kim Renz said. “With them, Lime Kiln is the principle venue for music and theatre in Rockbridge County all summer. Without them, Lime Kiln does not exist.”

Friends of Lime Kiln perform duties including ushering at concerts and plays, parking cars, running concession stands and selling tickets to clerical work, stuffing envelopes and working backstage.

“Now that we are remounting our production ‘machine,’ volunteers are more important than ever. We are rebuilding as community theatre, and we hope that anyone interested in performing, learning about lighting, sound, costuming and scenery will join our operation,” Renz said.

For more information about the gathering and to RSVP, contact Lime Kiln Arts chair Joanne Peretti at 540.464.1422.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
