Campaign has ended


Hello everyone! My name is Ariel Russell, and I’m a third year in the theater department at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. March for the arts is a fundraiser that we plan every year in order to raise money for our department as it is not funded by the school or district. As you may know, putting on performances is very expensive. So, your donation will help the theater department to do the best they can in their art. It goes towards performances, any props, rehearsals, even pay for our amazing acting teachers. So please donate now and support the theater department! Anything helps! Thank you so much!

March for the Arts, is the

Duke Ellington School of the Arts annual Theatre


Support Us!

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.

Celebrate With Us!

Once upon a time there was an enchanted land full of magical spells, beautiful maidens, and true love where everyone lived happily ever after. Or did they??? Take a magical tour through the enchanted forests of Georgetown and learn what really happened to Rapunzel, Jasmine, Hansel and Gretel and other misrepresented characters during an interactive live show. After the performance, get more of the real scoop while you fly high on the moon bounces with Aladdin, play croquet with Alice, eat homemade treats with Tiana, and dance like the clock will never strike 12 with Cinderella! Enchanted showtimes are at 10:30 and 12. Dress as your favorite misrepresented fairytale character for a special gift from the Prince!
