My Students

Our school is an International Baccalaureate school in a high poverty neighborhood. Our drama program serves a large number of students who enjoy the opportunities that the performing arts offers them. We've recently begun to revamp our program, and are taking every opportunity to make the best of what we have.

Theater fills a crucial need for our students to express themselves and showcase their potential.

These talented kids deserve every opportunity to reach their potential, and with your help, they will.

My Project

After many years, our students are producing a theatrical musical accompanied by an orchestra. With a band behind them, our students need quality lapel microphones so that their beautiful voices can be heard. They've been in rehearsal for about a month, and are looking to match what they've learned about vocal projection with a bit of technological support.

These kids are waiting to sing their hearts out and, with your help, they will have the equipment they'll need for this and many more productions.

Theater teaches students confidence, camaraderie, and empathy. This project will help inspire students for years to come.
