Seize the Day! Newsies Unite!

My Students

Over the last 20 years, our school has developed a reputation of excellence and high quality theater performances. Many accolades and awards have been given to our students from various organizations, celebrating their talent and hard work in acting, voice, dance, and technical theater. The greatest part of all this is that these incredible opportunities are offered to our students free of cost.

The drama program covers an incredible range of personalities and stories.

The life changing experiences they gain from being involved in theater are offered equally to any student who is willing to work hard and is open to learning.

The theater program is made up of students who have chosen to spend their extra-curricular time practicing their commitment and passion for the craft of Theatre Arts. These students are talented, sensitive, charismatic, and risk-takers. This spring, we are producing "Disney’s Newsies".

My Project

At ROMS we are a VERY student centered, hands on theater program. We focus on giving our students the best tools possible to perform on our stage, and the results are always incredible. We need to have quality equipment that can last through rigorous dance numbers, student use, and SEVERAL performances.

This year, we are absolutely raising the bar with our incredible production of Newsies.

We need more microphone elements to use with our mic pack rentals since we have about 25 characters with microphones at some point.

We also need some specialty props for the show, and Gaffers tape (because we never seem to have enough!)
