Our Theatre Class Must Be Heard

My students need 8 wireless microphones to use for our play production class.

I teach 10th grade English at a school where 100% of the students receive free lunch. This is a very special international studies public charter school, which is a school of choice for these students. Every student who graduates from our school will have met the A-G requirements to enter a UC or CSU school. For many of these students, they will be the first generation in their families to attend college.

Despite the fact that these students take a very rigorous academic course load, many of them have chosen elective classes in the arts. For these students, it is all about passion and dedication. They love what they do and they are good at it... but it doesn't matter if no one can hear them. We have a great stage in a beautiful auditorium, but we have no microphones. It is hard to hear them as is, and when the loud air conditioning unit goes on, it is basically impossible. They work so hard to make their productions great, I don't want to see their productions ruined because they couldn't be heard.

We really just need some wireless microphones. With just 8 microphones, we can share amongst the cast and everyone will be heard!

This one simple thing will make the difference between our play production class being a success or a failure. Together we can prepare these students for an exciting life in the spotlight!
