Hi, my name is Alaysia Lawson and I am a junior in the theater Department. the arts are very important to me and Duke Ellington has been an amazing place for me to learn and grow as an actor. We are raising money so that we are able to keep our department alive and thriving. So please donate money so that we keep growing as artists. Every penny counts!
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.
