Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am very excited about the possibility of being able to share with my students the opportunity to see a real life theatrical production of Cinderella!! The majority of my students have not even heard of a real life stage performance of any kind. I think this will be a tremendous opportunity for them to expand their horizons. They may realize that stage plays are just as exciting as going to a movie theater, maybe even more so. Covington High School in Covington, Louisiana will be presenting Rodgers and Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, a magical fairy tale reborn with charm and elegance. With great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children still soar when the slipper fits. Covington High is the high school that my junior high students will attend. I feel this will give them the opportunity to see if acting could be something they would like to try when they get to high school. As you can see, this trip can be beneficial to my students in a number of ways. The performance will take place in the spring of 2007. The performance dates are Tuesday, April 24th, Monday April 30th, Thursday, April 26th or Wednesday, May 2nd. The majority of my students receive free or reduced lunches. This means that they probably would not get the opportunity to attend a production because they wouldn't be able to afford it. Please consider making this a dream come true for my students. They will truly feel like CINDERELLA!!!
