My name is Santiago Moriarty and I'm a first year student in the Theater Department at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts. I've just moved to Washington, DC from Bolivia, where I first fell in love with the theater. As an aspiring actor I take every chance I get to perform or help in theater in any way possible. This year, together with my company and peers in the Theater Department, I'm hoping to perform and entertain for you! I'm incredibly excited and humbled to have the opportunity to study here at Duke. Founded in 1974, Duke Ellington is a public school that gives amazing opportunities to kids from all kinds of backgrounds who might not otherwise have access to such a world-class education in the arts. We are passionate about theater, and have a lot of exciting things planned this year. However, we do need your help - running a theater department with 60+ people is a lot of work, and costly. Donations will help to fund various productions (set design, costumes, etc.), special events and workshops, and a trip to New York, where we hope to see a Broadway play and maybe even meet with the cast and crew. We are counting on your generosity to keep us going and to help us fulfill our theater dreams. Every single dollar counts! THANK YOU and see you at The March For The Arts!!!
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.
