But what does theatre have to do with children learning to read?

Without literacy, there would be no theatre – no one to write them, create them, or act in them. Your donations gives the next generation the ability to conquer the world one book at a time.

Plays like “A Raisin in the Sun” and “The Crucible” helped change the perspective of the world and have created conversations in classrooms across the region. Writers like Shakespeare originated tropes and storylines that have been used for years.  Even creators like Quentin Tarantino and Greta Gerwig needed to be able to read and write before making any of their films.  All of your favorite Netflix and HBO shows needed literate individuals to create the script, hire, film, and get it onto a screen. All of that started at the same places, in homes and classrooms where children were learning to read and write.


Can’t attend?  It’s okay you can still donate here.
