I am a teacher at a Title I school in southeast Louisiana. The majority of our students receive free or reduced lunch. We have recently gained many students from the schools in or near New Orleans. Every year in spring, our school puts on a play for the parents. This year we are performing, "The Wizard of Oz in the Land of Learning." We are very proud of the productions at our school! However, we are constantly trying to make each show better than the one before. This year I would like to have two stationary spotlights to shine across our stage. This will cut down on shadows which hide the faces of our hard working students. I would also like to have a spotlight on a stand with the ability to focus on one person or item at a time. Please help us bring a little bit of Broadway to our small town!
