Mrs. Houston from Brooklyn NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Original Production of Newsies

My students need costumes for their production of Newsies! This includes newsboys hats! Students will also be designing their own backdrops for the set!

My Students

Most of my students are developing English Language skills and are from diverse backgrounds. Most have recently come to this country from another country and are working on learning the language. All are motivated and eager to assimilate into the culture and strive for success.

Our school is located in Brooklyn.

We are a 9-12 school and we do not screen students. We invite all students with open arms and we work hard to provide all students with the resources they need.

My Project

The show must go on no matter what but the experience will be so much better with actual costumes! Looking to offset some of the costs to students by purchasing a portion of their costumes. I am also looking to spend more time on writing and practicing then searching for costumes. This production is student led! They are excited for this experience and we do not turn anyone away. No auditions needed! A part for all. We would keep these materials for future productions as we are looking to expand our drama department. We will be hand making the other materials needed!
