Volunteers pitch in during theater work day

Posted

ROCHELLE — Vince Carney Community Theater held work days at the Lincoln Arts Center this past weekend, and some star power turned out to lend a hand.
Philip Earl Johnson, who performs in Renaissance faires across the country as MooNie the Magnif’Cent, pitched in to help install railings and painted along with the local crew.
Johnson also is active in the Chicago theater scene, performing with Goodman Theater, Steppenwolf Theater and the Illinois Shakespeare Theater. He has appeared in several movies and television shows including Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Empire.

He performed a benefit for VCCT in October, an outdoor show at the former Lincoln School site, and offered to help on some upcoming workdays.
VCCT is hoping to finish enough work to have a spring show in its new home.  
Among the other volunteers over the weekend were Dale Rand, Carol Weidmann, Steve Frank, John Whitaker, Terry Camplain and Gary Mason.
Volunteers are always welcome but must be at least 18 years old. If interested in volunteering, contact VCCT either through its website or Facebook page or by contacting Steve Frank.
