Ninety-five percent of our student population qualifies for free lunch. A lot of our students have been classified by others as being troubled, but they have grown to love our theater department.
They are diamonds in the rough and are always looking for ways to entertainment an audience.
Their grit has challenged me to be more creative in how I present opportunities. It has been great watching them blossom from improvisation to wanting to create their own works. My students are amazing.
We have been struggling with our current analog sound system. Recently, we are a part of the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards and we had extreme audio issues with our songs. For example, the tracks did not play in the house speakers and some of the musical was not heard by the audience. We also had to rent ten microphones which caused our budget to break.
Sound is the vital key to a successful production.
The Digital 32-Channel Audio Mixer and Lighting Controller will give us the ability to have more control of our sound, but will enable sound to be manipulated for our shows. Atlanta is one of the top areas for television and film production and we need to prepare our students for the job market. This board will be a game changer.
