Works sizing, cleaning, and maintaining the uniforms. Parents can help out in lots of ways even if they can’t sew!
A group of helpers who can move equipment, help build props and/or fix things.

The ensemble needs lots of money to run. We always need fresh ideas and people to coordinate. Annual fundraisers include: restaurant dates, raffles, corporate donations/match gifts, United Way, concessions, and trailer sponsorship.
While a majority of the profit goes to the organization, some proceeds go into individual student accounts to help with music related fees.
Through the year we have lots of opportunities to get involved with food service; Melody Tent at football games, BBQ’s, ‘pizza slingers’ and we have concessions for concerts as well as Theater at the Mount.

School District Activity Fee- AWRSD now uses “MySchoolBucks” and will email your invoice. This is separate from the OOMPA fees. If you qualify for free and reduced lunch the district fee is waived.
Please connect with an executive board member, or the director, to discuss financial assistance needs to help your student participate PRIOR to the fee due dates. OOMPA’s number one priority is to make sure every student can participate no matter their financial situation. OOMPA has some scholarship money available and will do everything we can to support students interested in the program.
