My Students

By day, I am a special education teacher. At day's end, I transform into our school's Once Upon a Courtroom Drama co-director. We currently have 32 students in the club in grades 1-4. Four years ago I started an elementary Mock Trial club sponsored by the SC Bar association for grades 4-5. For two years we learned about the law, studied scripts and performed puppet shows of the fairy tale trials. Last year I joined forces with a colleague and we created a full-length original mock trial script- a "mock-u-dramedy" including comedy, song, and...romance!

The students deserve to put on the best production possible; our club has acquired the sound equipment and costumes, but what they need next is professional stage makeup!

There is no cost for our club and we do not exclude students based on their academic or acting abilities. We feel so strongly about the dramatic arts, that ALL cast members get a role in the play or help with stage crew. We rely solely on fundraisers and donations to make our productions come to life.

My Project

My drama students are in grades 1 through 4. For most, this year's play is the first time they've ever been on stage, which can be quite daunting. They've worked tirelessly on memorizing lines, learning choreography and song. They deserve nothing but the best. We've secured sound equipment, scenery and costumes for all the students. The only thing left to make the students feel like they are on Broadway is wearing theatrical stage makeup. Your generous donations will allow us to secure high quality foundation and body paint, disposable applicators, and brushes.

Theatrical makeup is used to enhance the role of a character and to give performers an additional tool for conveying the characters being performed.

Please help my students not just dress as their characters, but transform into them!
