Theatre Arts Parent Support (TAPS)
TAPS is an all-volunteer organization of GHS parents and community members who support the Guilford High School Theatre Arts program through:
VOLUNTEERS: We provide parent volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks, including box office, chaperones, costumes, flower and refreshment sales, publicity, tech week support, and more.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Using income from membership and fundraising activities, we provide financial assistance to enhance programming that falls outside of GHSTA's operating budget. TAPS has purchased equipment, funded workshops, sent students to theatre festivals, and more. We also offer confidential scholarships to help cover added expenses (additional costuming, field trip fees, etc.)
All funds raised by TAPS are invested directly into the theatre program. Membership starts at $10; our goal is to get 100% support from GHSTA families. Thank you!
If you'd like to donate, please see the TAPS Membership Form on this page.
If you'd like to volunteer, please contact:
Hilary Gindi - TAPS Co-Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org
Amy Goldfarb, TAPS Co-Secretary: email@example.com

Katy Bloss, Chair: email@example.com
Membership meetings are twice a year; board meetings are generally held the first Tuesday of each month through June, at 7:00 pm.
One of the many educational components of the theatre program is to provide a safe and welcoming culture where students learn to self-advocate. Please encourage your kid(s) to email teachers directly. The more they engage, the more they will get out of the program.
If you have questions, please direct them to Cara Mulqueen-Teasdale (MulqueenC@guilfordschools.org) for performance, and to Nick Ripa (RipaN@guilfordschools.org) for anything related to tech (which is everything other than performance).
First TAPS Meeting for parents and students:
Wednesday, September 12, 7:00pm
in the Chorus room
