A Culture of Giving
Every year, the Friends Select School (FSS) theater department chooses a charity to support through their productions, in service of their mission to "educate, entertain, inform, and transform."
When FSS produced Chicago for their high school musical in April, they chose to raise funds for Women in Transition.
FSS Theater Arts Coordinator Donna Romero creates a culture of giving within her program, and connects the chosen charity to the theme of the performance. She explains, "Before the show, I asked the students to remember the women we were performing this for, and that performing is a privilege. I reminded them to take in all the love and applause they were about to receive and send it back to the women we were really doing this for." The musical raised $454.00 for WIT.
