Help Me Become the Best Me

by Simi Anifowoshe




Campaign has ended


Hey everyone! I've been at Ellington for a year now and there aren't enough words to express how much I've grown, both as an artist and a person. Being around like-minded people every day is helping me find my place in the world; the Theatre Department has become my family and I'm not sure who I'd be without the last year of my life.

Though, none of this would be possible without the support of my family and friends.

If you want to see me practice what I love every single day, grow into the best version of myself, and go on to work professionally in the industry, please donate to my campaign! 

Thank you so much for your support <3

Much Love,


March for the Arts, is the

Duke Ellington School of the Arts annual Theatre


Support Us!

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.

Celebrate With Us!

Once upon a time there was an enchanted land full of magical spells, beautiful maidens, and true love where everyone lived happily ever after. Or did they??? Take a magical tour through the enchanted forests of Georgetown and learn what really happened to Rapunzel, Jasmine, Hansel and Gretel and other misrepresented characters during an interactive live show. After the performance, get more of the real scoop while you fly high on the moon bounces with Aladdin, play croquet with Alice, eat homemade treats with Tiana, and dance like the clock will never strike 12 with Cinderella! Enchanted showtimes are at 10:30 and 12. Dress as your favorite misrepresented fairytale character for a special gift from the Prince!
