My Students

Our students have the wonderful opportunity to work with Disney Musicals in Schools through the Seattle Theater Group. This program helps students in low-income schools to produce a musical written by Disney. Last year we did The Lion King Kids, and this year we will be doing Aladdin Kids.

We work at a Title I School, where all of our students receive free breakfast and free lunch.

Our students walk into school with the odds stacked against them, and most of them do not have the resources they need to be successful. These children have been so excited to do this program again even with all of the things that they have going on in their lives. To be able to give them these opportunities to shine is wonderful.

My Project

All of our students have really enjoyed being a part of this program, and it would be wonderful to reward all their hard work with wonderful costumes for them to wear and sets to work with. These supplies will help us to create costumes and sets that our students can feel proud to wear and be proud of all the effort that they have put into putting on a great show!

We want our students to have functional set pieces, like scenery and vendor shops that can be moved around, that we can use for different purposes from year to year.

Having a great set will help them feel better able to create the characters on stage. They work so hard on this and they deserve to feel good about it. This is going to be our best show yet!
