My Students

Our school is comprised of over 500 diverse students from various backgrounds and cultures, where over 60% of our students receive free lunch. Last year we started the school's first ever Broadway Jr. program, where we now put on a musical every year.

The school musical has become a place for students to open up, explore new possibilities and be a part of our "theater family" each year.

Our students have proven to be incredibly dedicated, talented and enthusiastic, and deserve the very best we can offer them!

My Project

We are a new theater program, and we learned last year, that microphones are really, really important. Our students work so hard all year, and they should be heard the night of our show! These wireless transmitters and lavalier microphones will be used for our cast this year, to ensure their dialogue and vocals can be heard by the entire audience.

Musical theater brings together students from all grades, backgrounds and experiences, and unites them together with a common goal.

The directors and the students create relationships that will never be forgotten and students are able to show sides of themselves never seen before. These microphones will help support this year's production of Willy Wonka Jr., but will also be used in school productions for years to come!!
