Hi, my name is Lily Green and I am a first year at Duke Ellington. Ever since I was little I have loved the arts in general, I was always drawing fashion designs, singing, listening to music and putting on shows in the living room that I somehow dragged my brother into. Once I got to middle school I discovered theatre. My grandpa, Eric Green was always an inspiration because of his love and passion for theatre (Shakespeare specifically.) All through middle school I explored it yet I didn't really put myself out there. By the time I got to high school, I made it into the school's production of "The Tempest". When I first saw the cast list I was confused, I was "statue (bronze)" I found out the next day that it was a role that my director had made up and that role got me to where I am now. I didn't have many lines so it gave me the opportunity to watch other actors and proved to me that no role is ever a small role and that I wanted to pursue acting for the rest of my life.
Duke Ellington has taught me so much in just three weeks and I can't wait to continue learning and growing as an artist. Please donate what you can so we can sustain such a fabulous space. 100% of the money donated will be going to Duke Ellington School of the Arts for school trips, supplies and various events throughout the year. This will be able to keep our school and young artists thriving!
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.
