My Project

I am a first year theatre teacher at a school with beautifully talented students, yet lacking to resources to support them. As I try to bolster the program and support my students I am accumulating materials they can use in productions, projects, and class. This semester alone, three of the racks in our costume closet have collapsed and very nearly fell on top of a student. I am asking here for new costume racks and accompanying materials.

I need your help to keep my students safe.

These materials will not only promote their performances, their learning of technical theatre, and their confidence in our program, but also ensure their safety as they work in the costume closet. These costume racks will last for years to come and will replace the flimsy ones we currently are afraid to hang things on. The gaff tape, safety pins, and bobby pins, will be used in tandem with these racks to update the costume closet as well as for educational materials in technical theatre lessons in class.
