Hello and welcome, Hola y bienvenidos a mi pagina! My name is A’mari and I am a second year/sophomore in the Theatre Department and DESA.
I am very passionate about acting and the performing arts in general. For me, acting is a way of taking a break from reality while bringing joy, laughter and even sadness to others. When you act, it’s as if you’re viewing the world from another perspective.
I am so excited to invite you to participate in Duke Ellington’s annual fundraiser, March for the Arts! All of your contributions will help the theatre department provide costumes, stage props and supplies for our performances.
Please donate whatever amount you feel is appropriate. Every bit counts! Thank you in advance for supporting the cause and for also supporting me, my ensamble and our dream!
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.
