The arts are an essential element of education…music, dance, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.

We Need YOUR Support!

The cost of licensing and materials for shows, and running a theatre is higher than you might think! 

Just the LICENSING and SCRIPTS to a play or musical can range from $800 (Check Please) to $2350 (Addams Family) - or more!

Not to mention COSTUMING, STAGE MAKEUP, ADVERTISING, SET, PAINT, etc. Our wishlist includes replacing our outdated lighting board with cooler, more efficient LED LIGHTING, and improving our ability to run PROJECTIONS for classroom and show use.

THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE VERTICAL RAISE FUNDRAISER!!!
