Why We Are Fundraising
We work in a highly competitive industry. Come senior year, it is important for us to network with as many people in the professional performing arts world as possible. We are all in love with what we do, and passionate about our art. But to be able to continue to do what we love we must get the job first! We are raising money for two things:
- Our public Senior Showcase on November 15 and 16 with invited industry professionals from the Southeast.
- Our private sessions with invited professionals: A casting director and an agent from each coast: Los Angeles and New York City.
Putting up a show can be costly, but bringing in important people costs even more. To bring in our four selected agents and casting directors, we will need $8,000. That's $2,000 a head, and well worth it. We will have face time with people that can help us begin a career in the big, scary real world. We will take classes and work intimately with these people, as well as perform our showcase material for them, providing us with an invaluable experience.
Please know that we are doing everything in our power to fundraise! We have been very lucky in our events so far, and have more events set up throughout the year. Here are some other ways we are fundraising:
- Profit shares with local businesses
- Car washes
- Merchandise such as tumblers, t-shirts, and DRAMA sunglasses
- Games such as Assassins
- ... and more!
By raising enough money to reach our goal, we will be able to bring in two representatives in the performing arts business from each coast. This unique experience will allow us to have face time with, work with, and perform for industry professionals who can help us obtain jobs following graduation. In other words, are helping out the future Hollywood and Broadway stars of the next generation!
