My Students

All middle and high school students have a flair for drama, and ours are no exception...but in the best way possible. Our novice actors have taken their craft and are working hard to grow and bring more to the table with each production they participate in.

Our school is a college preparatory school in a neighborhood where 90% of families do not have a college graduate.

We are preparing them for a future that includes not only their attendance, but their graduation from a four year university. Our students work extremely hard to overcome their challenges both inside and outside the classroom. This year, they have the opportunity to participate in theater, and they have embraced this opportunity with gusto! They are in the midst of preparing for their first performance, a student written show about who they are beneath the surface. Their honesty and boldness humbles me every day, and with each passing rehearsal, their excitement grows over sharing their story with their community. Because this is our first year, we are starting this program with very limited resources, but you would never know it by talking to the students. They are ready to tell their stories with or without the "frills" of a theater.

My Project

I am requesting 2 round tables to serve as set pieces for their upcoming production. After a very successful first production, our small drama club has made a name for itself on our growing campus. Our students are now working on their first full one act production, and for this production they need some set pieces. We are building this program from the ground up and have no set pieces, props, or costumes on hand. These tables will not only be used in our upcoming production this spring, but they will also serve as versatile staples in our drama program that can be reused for many years to come.

These students got a taste for what it feels like to be validated by their peers, teachers, and community this fall after participating in a monologue showcase.

They came back from break excited and ready to take their acting to the next level in the form of a full production. These tables will help create a set that will give the students ease of mind, and add a level of professionalism to our production that will be on par with the level of hard work they are putting into the show.
