Mr. Warner from Meriden CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My students are a diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged group of 9th through 12th graders in a high need district. The students are participants in the after school theatre program and/or students in our Introduction to Theatre class.

These students give tirelessly of themselves for countless hours in and after school to create student-led theatrical productions.

The students handle almost all aspects of the theatre program, including serving as designers, stage managers, carpenters and technicians. They are fully committed to making the most of their limited resources so that the productions are as high quality as possible.

My Project

Our students have been working hard to create a state of the art theatre program. We recently moved in to a brand new theatre space, but the technology we are working with hasn't kept up with our new facility.

With a MacBook, our students will be able to create their own sound designs, cues, and music to enhance our theatrical performances.

This technology will work seamlessly with our theatre's sound system and let them operate at the same level as theatre professionals.

We want our students to be career ready, so we want them to be using the same tools as the professionals. With a MacBook to run our sounds off of, that can become a reality.
