BES Needs to be Heard from the Balcony!

My students need their voices heard and these mics will deliver them to our audiences.

My Students

Our students have come together as a drama family over the past 4 years. From the smallest Munchkin or Oompa Loompa to our spectacular leads, they embrace the chance to express themselves on stage. We are a Title 1 school, in which many of our students do not have the chance to explore the arts with their families. They are not able to go to see a show, even at the local theater.

Our Drama Club is full of 125+ vivacious students who cannot get enough of the stage.

They work for months on the production and behind the scenes. They are dedicated and serious actors. The revel of each years' musical is an event in and of itself. It is wonderful to see a student with low self-confidence blossom when they enter our auditorium and take the stage!

My Project

Barkley Elementary is known in our community for the amazing musical productions each year. Students from 1st through 5th grade participate each year to 'sell out' crowds. They work for months, both on stage and behind the scenes, to be sure to rock the socks off of their audience! It is a shame that sometimes their voices cannot be heard due to old microphones.

Our current microphones are the lanyard style which do not bode well for all the movement that our triple threat leads go through (singing, dancing and acting).

The new headset microphones will allow every word and note to be heard crisp and clearly.
