WOW. This is my last year of high school making it my last March for the Arts fundraiser! The Last Hurrah! Firstly I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my entire journey at Duke Ellington, I wouldn't change it for the world. This is the year where you finally get to see all the late nights and hard work pay off! I will be participating in a senior showcase and several other performances but I need your help. Funding for the theatre department is limited, and we need to fundraise to make sure that not only I get a great senior year but my ensemble and those below me. Thank you for all your support and donations if you can! Love you! Let's kill it!
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.
