Dear Lake Highlands High School Theatre Community,
Like hundreds of theatre programs, our Dallas area high school program has been affected by restrictions due to COVID-19. But we've had good news from the school district! Our Varsity Troupe has been given the greenlight to perform their one act play Desdemona in the Afterlife in 2021 in a showcase with other schools in our district. This play was handpicked years ago by our award wining theatre director, Erin Kane, especially for this particular group of students. It's an all female cast who perform the ladies of Shakespeare's tragedies as they wrestle with life, death, and what it means to be a woman. This will be the first public performance of this school year for our students.
How we need your help. In a typical year, we would cover the costs of this production with the proceeds of our Fall Play. This year, we weren't allowed to have a Fall play. So we are hoping you can help us with your tax deductible donation to cover the cost of things like our costumes and set (there's a giant tree that features heavily in the script) along with travel costs and technical theatre equipment.
Any amount can help make possible what could be the only chance this year for some of these talented, hard-working kids do what they love - bring stories to life on the stage.
