I have been studying Shakespeare since 2016 with The Shakespeare Theatre Company in the District of Columbia, and I have loved exploring the mind and work of Shakespeare.  I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to study Shakespeare in Oxford England with the British American Drama Academy. I am excited to immerse myself in the work of Shakespeare not too far from the late playwright’s birthplace.  I am looking forward to this journey and how it will help my transformation and growth in my craft.  Please help support me in this journey so I can afford travel, tuition and room and board.  I am grateful that you are willing to help in any way you are able.

Greetings Ellington Community,  

We need your support. We are reaching out to everyone in the school community and beyond to support Ellington Theatre students - Ariel Russell, Angel Arii, and Princess Louden - who have already 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.

How would you like to support?
