My Students

I can teach craft. I can quiz and test on lighting instruments, the parts of the stage, the plot of a play, and the correct notes to sing. But I cannot teach a heart and soul to yearn for magic.

Those who search for the magic, will find it.

Every day at work, I get to be a part of my students journey to foster creativity and gain confidence, both on the stage and off of it. I get to be a part of watching them learn how to persevere, how to problem solve, how to hold themselves accountable. I get to watch them learn to get used to the idea that when they engage in creating something collaboratively, that their actions affect other people. Being involved in the process of creating art has the potential to do more to prepare you for life than anything academic ever could.

Among the brilliance and flash, there exists in my students a covert and gentle dignity in each moment, and a desire to constantly get better. You can see it in their faces: a truth and concern for the moment, a genuine respect for the value of each minute in time.

My Project

Our school was built almost 25 years ago, and the equipment our drama students have to work with is just as old.

An iPad will save the play!

With your generosity, you will provide our students with a way out. You will provide the modern day capability that 21st century theatre commands, and our students lack. They have a such intense passion for the stage and for performing. Their visions are grand, yet limited by the constraints of our auditorium equipment. We are in need of modern technology to run sound for, and edit videos of, our high school plays.
