My name is Blake Robinson and I am a second year at Duke Ellington. I chose this school because I love the community and it will really help me for the future. My goals for this school is to make sure that I get a good GPA and that I learn a lot more about acting. I want to raise money because this is really important to me and the Duke Ellington Theater Program.
In the Theatre Department, students aren't just taught how to act. They are taught how to create the stories they want to see. They are given the tools to shape the world around them with their art. Ellington relies on the generosity of parents and donors to ensure that our students receive the highest level of pre-professional training and performance opportunities. Donations enable them to create sets, craft costumes, power technical capabilities, hire additional instructors, and fund classes with Master Acting Teachers like the renowned Professor Vera Katz.
