Mr. Garrett from Calabasas CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technical Theatre Class

My students need 6 technical theatre text books.

  • $190 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach Theatre and Stagecraft at the high school level. My students are passionate about the arts and I would like to provide them the best possible education.

As you know, the current budget situation makes it extremely difficult to get the necessary funding for the arts. We are trying to grow our technical theatre program but the limited funding makes it very difficult.

We would like to provide our students with technical theatre text books. I believe these resources will help us teach them about lighting, sound, stage construction more effectively.

Your contribution will help our students experience the power of the performing arts! Thank you!

Mr. Garrett
Grades 9-12
