We are a medium- sized, inner-city school that receives Title 1 funding, meaning that many of my students receive free or reduced-priced lunches. Many of my students have multiple "at-risk" factors ranging from being second language learners to economic hardships at home. Even so, students at my school still find ways to thrive. Our students work hard to overcome adversities and receive academic, athletic, and artistic awards throughout the year.
They are creative, energetic students that are dedicated to our theatre program.
Our theater arts program has been very successful in our One-Act Play contest. The students used a Studio Live mixer last year, that we borrowed, to control our show's sound cues from backstage. The students were able to keep the volume of the cues consistent from contest to contest and our students were the only ones using our equipment, which helped ensure that the cues functioned correctly. This is important because the One-Act Play contest requires the students to perform the play at different venues with different sound systems. Consistency helps the students perform well. The Studio Live mixer also provides the students with the opportunity to work with equipment they would encounter if they worked as sound engineers at the professional theater or concert venue.
