Greetings Ellington Community,
We need your support. We are reaching out to everyone in the school community and beyond to support Ellington Theatre students — N’Dea Banks-Mackey, Sydney Downs, Ari Jackson, Lila Kay, Rainah Taylor, and Autumn Whetstone — who have been accepted into the prestigious Midsummer Conservatory Program at the British American Drama Academy (BADA) in Oxford, England. This three week summer program at the University of Oxford, immerses students in Acting, Voice and Movement classes along with Cultural Studies in Shakespeare’s time. Students develop their skills in the acting process, analysis, and critical thinking, which will also help to meet the challenges of applying for college or drama school. While this camp is invaluable, the trip, tuition, and accommodations are considerable, and we are asking the community to help support this life-changing experience.
Please show your love and support one or all of these amazing artists. Together, we can make this happen!
P.S. To support a specific student with your donation, choose Make this a Tribute Donation and add the student's name. To find out more about BADA, click here.
