On Saturday, October 23rd, members of the Pre-Law Society and the LEAP Ambassadors volunteered to deep-clean Huntsville’s Old Town Theatre. Before the cleaning began, Professor Yawn gave us a tour of the interior…
…including the backstage, dressing rooms, and exterior of the Old Town Theatre, where we also learned about the works of the artist Richard Haas. The dressing rooms, with large bathrooms and soft lighting, were clearly the favorite of the tour.
As we embarked on the fall cleaning, we assessed what needed to be done and strategically coordinated our cleaning.
We separated into three groups to tackle our tasks more efficiently, focusing on the main auditorium, balcony, and stage.
Each group worked in an assembly-line style, with someone vacuuming, cleaning, and disinfecting the backs and bottoms of every seat.
Our advisors, Stephanie and Professor Yawn even joined in the fun, and we also got the windows at the front of the theatre.
As each task was being accomplished, there was a drawing for prizes such as snack packages, power banks, candles, cups, and throw blankets. Everyone was able to get a prize as a thank-you for their help.
After cleaning, we were satisfied with all our hard work, Professor Yawn headed upstairs to show us how the lighting and sound systems work as he began My Cousin Vinny, a fan favorite. We enjoyed a clean theater and cautiously ate the popcorn we were treated to.
After the movie was finished, those of us who had not seen it clearly understood why it is favored by so many attorneys.
