My Students

The majority of our students at our highly diverse school come from low-income households. Our school's mission is to have an equity lens as we prepare all students for college and beyond, providing opportunities for them to learn and grow both in and out of the classroom. Our theater program helps provide a supportive environment in which students step outside of their comfort zone and collaborate to form art together.

Having access to activities students are passionate about helps increase sense of belonging, therefore increasing classroom engagement and furthering our college bound mission.

A theater program was much needed at our school to expand the possible creative outlets for our students. Many of our students had never stepped on stage prior to auditioning. I continue to be amazed by the students' encouragement of one another and the talent and hard-work they put into creating productions. They truly come together as a theater family.

My Project

When we decided in the Fall to put on plays after about 6 years without any productions at the school, we were not sure what equipment would be available to us. Using our limited, outdated equipment, the small production we put on in the Winter was a huge success and exceeded our expectations. However with about 10% of our school population wanting to play a role in our Spring musical, we quickly realized that we did not have enough functioning microphones to allow all of our students to be heard in a larger cast.

Due to the poor acoustics in our performance space, our students must use microphones for the audience to enjoy the show.

The microphones and receiver system that we have selected are of good quality and will last into the future, benefiting students and audience members for years to come. We hope to continue to build the theater program with more productions of plays and musicals, but we need your help to make it successful!
