LiLo to work in homeless shelter's theatre workshop?

April 29, 2011 - New York

Looks like there is more to come in Lindsay Lohan's court-mandated stint at a women's homeless shelter.

A source at the Downtown Women's Center said the non-profit is interested in Lohan assisting its once-a-week theatre workshop.

"Definitely we're interested. She's an actress," the New York Daily News quoted the insider as saying.

"We try to match each person's skill set with the jobs that need to be done. If we had a caterer, we'd have them help with the 200 lunches we serve each day," the insider added.

The workshop isn't musical theatre, he warned. It explores highly emotional, painful experiences of domestic violence, sexual assault and being homeless.

For that reason, the organizers need to meet with Lohan first to see if it's a good fit.

"We can't say 'Oh yes, she's definitely doing it.' We have to explore the opportunity and the exposure to intensity," he said.

"Making lunch back in the kitchen is one thing. Working with ladies one-on-one is another experience that requires more training and a different comfort level.

"It's not something to start with on day one," he added.
