Arts Guild

All parents, grandparents, and other interested parties are invited and encouraged to join and participate in the Arts Guild.

The Arts Guild supports all of USJ’s visual and performing arts, which includes Band, Music, Art, Theater and Drama Classes starting with Pre-K all the way through 12th grade. A steering committee administers the operational affairs of the Guild and assists the Fine Arts departments, both in financial resources and in volunteer support. Parent volunteers promote all theater productions, maintain the costume closet, sell tickets, work backstage, chaperone trips and have many other opportunities for hands-on involvement. Our funds help pay for theater productions and other fine arts events.  We provide scholarships for summer enrichment and buy supplies and equipment for our Fine Arts teachers.

The Arts Guild meets the second Tuesday of the month at 8:00 a.m. in the Middle School conference room.  Please check calendar for any changes.

Anyone wishing to become a part of the Guild should contact Christi Haynes, 2012-2013 Guild President, christihaynes2002@yahoo.com.

Our main financial support is through families who become Patron/Corporate Sponsors. Corporate Sponsors get great exposer. Each of our productions has an average attendance of 1,000 – 1,200 and all productions are advertised in the community at large. Arts Guild also maintains a high social media profile.

Corporate and Legacy Sponsors Procedure for Reserved Seating for Fine Arts Productions

To reserve your seats for any production, please contact Amy Koerner by text or cell, 267-0333, before noon on the day before the performance that you have chosen.

There are 4 Middle/Upper School productions each year and each production has many performances.  You are allowed to use your allotted tickets/reserved seats to any performance or performances that you choose.

(Example: If you are a Platinum sponsor, you have 10 tickets, which entitle you to 10 reserved seats. You can use all of your reserved seats at the 7 p.m. performance, for example, or you can use five seats for the 7 p.m. performance one night, three seats for the 7 p.m. performance the next night, and two seats for the Sunday matinee.)

The Lower School has several productions. and they are usually only one night. You still must call by noon the day before the production in order to reserve your seats.

Patrons will not be given reserved seating to the Middle/Upper School productions. Due to the number of reserved seats, we ask that you please adhere to the policy of reserved seating. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any Guild member.
