My name is Emmett Justice and I am a freshman at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Duke Ellington is hosting a March For the Arts and they have asked every student to raise $700. How Is a 14 year old going to raise $700 you ask? By hustling! I will be selling stuff out of my locker and be selling some of my own items as well to make $700.
In the Theatre Department, students aren't just taught how to act. They are taught how to create the stories they want to see. They are given the tools to shape the world around them with their art. Ellington relies on the generosity of parents and donors to ensure that our students receive the highest level of pre-professional training and performance opportunities. Donations enable them to create sets, craft costumes, power technical capabilities, hire additional instructors, and fund classes with Master Acting Teachers like the renowned Professor Vera Katz.
