The Cypress Falls High School theater department is seeking volunteers to help build new risers in the school’s black box theater on June 27 and June 28 at the campus, located at 9811 Huffmeister Road.

Cypress Falls theater co-directors Cory Kelley, Sherry Frank and Rachel Seney will utilize the services of a local business, Ryan Stavinoha Custom Cabinets and Trim, while reaching out to workers of every skill level to complete the risers in two days.

“Mr. Stavinoha will help ensure that they are built to a high standard, but we need people at the school to get the job done,” Kelley said. “We look forward to a successful group effort that ultimately leads to the beautification of our black box theater.”

To volunteer for the build, please sign up online.

Cypress Falls initially applied for and won one of 30 semifinalist spots in the SMASH Make a Musical contest when the theater directors described that they would use the winnings to build new risers in the black box theater, a multi-purpose room at the campus that serves as both a classroom and performance space.

When the contest concluded on April 10, Cypress Falls fell short of gathering enough votes to earn one of the five finalist slots that would have promised a $3,000 gift card from Lowe’s.

Despite that, CFISD partner Stone Gate Home Owner’s Association donated $3,751.05 to fully fund the renovation project.
