Lifting Student Voices in Drama Class

Help me give my students the wireless headsets and PA speakers. We act in an auditorium where it's very hard to hear.

My Students

My students are a mix of minority and non-minority inner city students. We have students from almost every country and cultural background in the world. They are curious and critical thinkers. They study technical and academic subjects in a comprehensive high school.

They are tenacious and not afraid of challenges.

My Project

The students will use the PA system and headsets to act on stage at my high school. Lifting voices and enhancing performances will add to their love of acting. It will also help them break out of their shell.

This performance equipment will help them develop their own unique voice and personality.

Acting provides the environment to allow students to experiment with the attitudes they will carry forward as young men and women in society. Additionally, our performances involve the entire school community. More importantly, it gives students the opportunity to let their fires shine brightly.
