The Terrell High School Theatre Department strives to bring a positive influence to our community by performing quality shows with a message that helps improve our culture.
The success of our students is made possible by the generous support of this community and businesses! Our student have dedicated themselves to their art and have been chosen to represent our country in arguably the most prestigious high school theatre event in the world, the Fringe Festival in Edinburg Scotland. This event is the world’s largest performing arts festival, and is often referred to as the Super Bowl of high school theatre. As you can imagine, it is a true privilege and honor to receive an invitation to attend, and it speaks volumes of our students’ talent.
The opportunity to expose our young artists to an experience like this will broaden their understanding of the world, bring them an unmatched educational opportunity to learn not only about theatre, but of the fullness of performing arts, as well as allow them to expand their own talents and knowledge through hands on learning, through acting, technical experience, educational workshops and the opportunity to experience the culture of the world. We believe in the power of the arts and their ability to shape well rounded and community invested young people. Support for local and regional leadership, positive encouragement from our community with the support of investment like yours, will make this experience possible for our students.
Taking a production to the United Kingdom is a large and costly undertaking. The approximate cost for each student is $6,000. Our goal is to see that each of our students has the opportunity to experience this once in a lifetime trip, but it will take the support of donors like you!
Where does all the money go, you might ask? Here is a breakdown of our $150,000 budget:
There are some different sponsorship opportunities to support the trip, but of course, any amount is greatly appreciated!
