Theatre is a universal language that everyone understands. It allows you to think deeper about the world, and that's why I love it. To be able to express my passion it's not free. The theatre department is not funded sufficiently enough to allow us to perform and give art to the world; so it is up to the students to raise money. Which means I along with my classmates are responsible to raise money, so friends and family and anyone who wants to, any donation would be greatly appreciated.
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.
