Hi, I am Zoë Blanton and I am a freshman in the theater department at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. We don’t get enough money from DCPS to have our amazing productions, materials, and teachers, we, the theater department, have to raise this money ourselves. In the future I would like to create a non profit organization for children to allow them to express themselves and raise societal awareness. To do these things I need Duke Ellington and its resources. Currently we create many astounding productions that express the story of untold voices. These large productions, as well as smaller devised theater pieces, and side projects are about social justice issues. To allow Duke Ellington theater department to continue these amazing projects we need money so, please donate as much as you can so I and my classmates can have an amazing school and programs to better our dreams and art form.
TO SUPPORT YOUNG THEATRE ARTISTS ON THE MOVE
CELEBRATE WITH US ON OCTOBER 26 AT OUR ANNUAL
MARCH FOR THE ARTS FESTIVAL
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Georgetown’s history of mystery doesn’t deter counselors from setting up Camp Ellington at the historic Duke Ellington School of the Arts campus. All of the superstitious locals warn against it, but the young counselors pay little heed to the old timers. Campers try to enjoy activities like moon bounces, sack races, camp stories, delicious food and costume contests*, but mysteriously they keep disappearing. “Who will survive and what will be left of them?”
Come join the fun and help solve the mystery at Camp Ellington on Saturday, October 26th from 10-1pm. Guests will participate in an arts festival and March through Georgetown with performances and events from classic horror films. “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Fun for the whole family! We’re celebrating and “evil loves to party!”
*Come dressed in costume to enter our costume contest! Extra points given to entries dressed as their favorite horror film character.
