My students are absolutely amazing! Last year was our first year building a drama program and this semester we have about 75 kids involved in the theater department. In our first year, we attended a One Act Competition, placing fourth in our division, put on a Christmas Palooza, hosted a Talent Show, and just finished our first ever full-length Spring Musical, Shrek. I have some very hard working kids!
Most of my students had never been in a production before last year, but with the start of our new drama program, we are giving them the opportunity to shine!
My kids are learning so much about working together as a team and how to persevere even when they feel like quitting. Putting on a production is definitely a lot of hard work!
This program is also bringing our school together. So many different types of students have signed up for a drama or chorus class. We have football players, band members, agricultural students, and many more! I feel like being involved in a musical has brought many students new friends that they may not have made otherwise.
My students are in need of a portable speaker to help with our performance opportunities. We've been asked to sing at several local events where we needed to bring our own sound system. These events did not need a huge speaker setup, which would have been out of place. Instead we needed a small speaker that would impact a large room.
With your help we can be prepared to perform for our local community!
A portable speaker would ensure that when we are asked we are ready. This speaker would allow the performers to hear the music as well as the audience.
We would also be able to use a portable speaker when we need to rehearse somewhere other than our classroom. It would allow me to send small groups out into the hallway or practice rooms to rehearse with music, while continuing to teach the larger group in the main classroom. A portable speaker would be a welcome addition to our drama program!
