Hello, My name is Jahmiya Quarles. I am a junior at Duke Ellington School of the Arts and I’m in the theatre department. Acting by itself has always been a highlight for me, it allows me to connect with my mind and body. I get some of the top training in my department. One day I hope to become a professional actor on stage and on camera. I want to eventually create a theatre company for all talented young artists who love this craft. But being an actor requires you to brand yourself and your company if you have one. Right now my department is doing a fundraiser called March for the Arts. This fundraiser will help raise money for shows, spaces, and training that I receive from some really experienced instructors. My goal is to make 1000$ And I believe I can do it. So I would be very thankful for any donations possible.
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.
