My Students

We have waited two long years for our new theater to open. We are beyond excited to mount plays and musicals for our community. The light/sound/projector booth has state-of-the-art boards but is missing one essential thing: a computer!

My students are quirky ambitious drama kids who love creating art.

Most of them go on to attend 4-year universities, some of them majoring in Theater. They are confident, well-read and ready to challenge themselves. Some shows our award-winning drama program has done: The Diary of Anne Frank, Our Town, Seussical, Antigone, The Laramie Project and The Curious Savage, just to name a few.

My Project

Last year, we wanted to project an image on the back wall of the theater for one of our productions. I had to borrow a lap top from a parent in order to do so. The theater's light booth is well-equipped except for a computer. When other teachers come in, they can't believe they have to find a lap top in order to complete their presentations. I would like a lap top so I can lock it up after each performance/presentation.

My students will be able to project images and video clips during shows.

Students will be better scene designers knowing they can incorporate technology into their designs. The entire school will benefit as there will be a lap top computer for all to use.
