FUNDRAISING


PURPOSE
Annually, we raise funds to sustain our theatre department's classes, programs, drama club/Thespian Troupe, and productions. We use all specified funds for this purpose. In fact, our hanging microphones and PZMs are an example of specified funds raised in part by alumni and used to improve the sound of our productions. Also, specified funds helped 20 Thespians attend International Thespian Festival 2010. THANK YOU DONORS FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!

COST
Items to be purchased vary from $5 to $5000. However, any contribution you can make will be added to the total amount raised in order to purchase larger items, such as additional body mics for musicals and plays, or offer scholarships to students to attend events and festivals.
