In our West Philadelphia neighborhood school, our K-8 students are extremely artistic and exuberant. Our classrooms are full of enthusiastic and talented performers, and we have decided to support them by developing one of the only elementary theatre programs in the School District of Philadelphia.
We want to center our school culture around students recognizing and celebrating one another, and we are always excited to have opportunities for them to showcase their talents.
This year, we have partnered with the Walnut Street Theatre and Disney Musicals in Schools to put on our first annual spring musical!
Thanks to the Walnut Street Theatre and Disney Musicals in Schools, we are putting on our first spring musical (Aladdin!), and we want to make our auditorium worthy of the work that our students are putting in.
We want to build on their support and invest in our future students by equipping our stage with a permanent audio system that will amplify our student voices.
Funds from this campaign will go to high-quality speakers and other audio equipment which will help our students be heard for years to come.
Thanks to our generous community, we have already purchased new hanging microphones; now we will have a full sound system to integrate them into.
