I have dreamed of being apart of the Duke Ellington theatre program since before Middle school. Now I am here, at Duke Ellington pursuing my dreams. In order for those dreams to be amazing we need a large amount of funding. It is our job as students and as the community of Duke Ellington to make this happen. We ask that you would please help us March for the Arts! By donating, coming out to our productions, and reaching our goal of $70,000. Thank you Duke Ellington community!
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.
