Hello My name is Jayla Hunter. This is my first year at Duke Ellington School of the Arts and I am super excited. Over the past four years I have strived to work hard as an actress to be the best I can be. My journey has not been easy, my family has given up a lot for me to grow and have more opportunities an artist. They have made long drives to rehearsal on Saturday and even moved to D.C for me to go to Duke Ellington.
After my time at Duke Ellington I plan to become an actress on stage and on camera and try my hand at African history style movies. Later on in my life I want to develop and run an arts program in Prince George's County. The money I raise during this campaign will help with shows, studio spaces, and training we receive from our unpaid instructors . I would greatly appreciate if you donate to our program, thank you in advance!
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.
