Back in September, after having seen a great need in my community for arts programs for students and adults, I set out to put on a theatre program and direct a musical in the community. Ihad worked with my students at local churches and schools that were looking for creative outlets,but whose parents could not afford to have them participate in local theatres or choirs. I alsoencountered teachers, pastors and other working adults whose work schedules would not allow them the flexibility to participate with local programs. The goal was to raise enough money for the production that cast members would not have to pay dues to be apart of it, and coordinate the schedule so that busy adult s with careers could also participate. This was going to be a significant challenge, but after raising money in the fall and securing a couple of churches with open schedules, I felt that I had a realistic and measurable goal that I could accomplish over the period of a couple of months.
