An Investment in my Future

by Aaron Curtis




Campaign has ended


Hi, my name is Aaron Curtis. I attend Duke Ellington School of the Arts as a sophomore

currently. I love it so much! For our department to have funding each student is given the task

of raising $700 in ONLY a COUPLE MONTHS. This is important because funding for our

department opens so many opportunities for people of color to pursue their dreams in this

already difficult business. You should donate to me specifically because my goal is to effect

positive change in the world with my platform. Every single dollar helps build the platform

that I will one day use to help my community and many others who are not fortunate to get the

education that I am currently getting. In short, it would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED if

you could donate and invest in not only me my peer's dream but the legacy of Mike Malone

and Peggy Cooper-Cafritz as all donations help the entire school. So please it would mean so

much to help me reach my goal of not only $700 but $1000.

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!
