Don't Stop the Beat

Help me give my students the ability to help the beat go on with costumes for our production. My drama students are so excited to bring the beat to their school with their first ever musical!

My Students

My students are sponges, and I know that sounds cliche, but they are. This year I have students that are wanting to learn about various events in history, give their thoughts when it comes to discussion, and work with their hands.

The school district that I teach in is located in a small coastal town where many students never make it over the bridge to see what else is out there.

I want to expose my students to as much as I can and in order to do this, I have to be able to take them places using different styles of teaching. From Ted Talks, to novels and hands-on learning-my students are ready to explore.

My Project

My students are already hard at work for their first ever musical! In order to help my students feel their best and look the part, we need costumes that reflect the 60s. While I have a few items, I do not have enough to outfit the entire cast. Myself and the co-director have purchased some items already but these will help put us towards our goal.

The 2019-2020 show season is looking so bright for my students that we need amazing costumes to keep shining.

The items above will serve as costume pieces for our cast as well as be samples of what students need to look for should they venture out in the world to find their own. By having this costumes ready to go at the start of the year, we will be able to look at the play and have the students feel like they are really their characters.
