This past spring, our theatre program was one week away from opening our production of RENT, school edition, when we went into shelter-in-place. Melanie Zapper, our theatre instructor and director was able to create this video of one of the songs from the show, “Seasons Of Love”. It also includes a heartwarming message to the graduating seniors.
Because we were not able to perform this musical, it left us with all of the expenses of the show without the income from the ticket sales. As a result, the AAI Theatre program will be starting next school year $5000 in debt, a significant loss to our program.
To help recuperate our losses, we have set up a GoFundMe. All donations to this platform will be used to pay off our debt. Any additional funding will be used to ensure our students and community continue to have quality performing arts experiences on our campus. Any contribution you can make would be greatly appreciated. I can not express how much your donation would mean to me and the students. Thank you for your continued support of the performing arts in our local educational setting.
