Excited about a career in theatre? Get your apron and bring that hamburger to table thirty-two!

BAAY director David Post, an experienced server, will lead a fun, hands-on class on how to serve customers in a restaurant. At the end of the course, you’ll receive a letter of recommendation from him (if you earn it). The culmination of the semester will be serving a formal dinner to lucky patrons…with the meal catered by a professional caterer. What a blast this will be and really practical! For ages 9 through 16.
