Auditorium Renovation Help needed!

We are getting our auditorium renovated this summer!  The construction starts the day after school is out, so we’re starting to get it ready.  We need to move many items out of the pit, into a storage area outside.  Any help you can spare is very much appreciated!  Be sure to wear work clothes and if no one is in the auditorium when you come, check the choir room for instructions.
