Programs You Can Support

Sometimes, when supporting a non-profit, you want to know how you can help.  We all want to support good works, but some times we want more specifics!

Here are some of the projects you can support by participating in this GoFundMe Fundraiser.

 


 

Lowell Elementary (year one)

Lowell is a lovely school in a poor neighborhood in Downtown San Jose.  Audacity is working with their after school programs provider to produce two musicals this year (one on the fall and one in the spring).  In the fall we are planning on producing Disney’s Jungle Book, Kids Edition and, in the spring we are planning on producing Lion King, Kids Edition.
These productions at Lowell are being provided at no cost to the families or the school.  While we are carefully working to amortized production costs of these shows across multiple schools, the cost of producing these shows is project to run $3000 per show.

 


 

Washington Elementary (year two)

Washington is located in an area of Downtown San Jose plagued by poverty, crime, drugs and gang violence.  This year Audacity is expanding its after school program commitment. We are also preparing to work with Washington’s first every PTA to provide additional performance opportunities. The programs at Washington are also provided at no cost to families or the school and are estimated at $3500, but may adjust as programs expand and grow.

Broadway High School: Broadway Voices (year two)

Broadway High School is the continuation high school for San Jose Unified located in South San Jose.  The kids here have all had issues with their primary high schools and, in acts of inspired bravery (some inspired by the court system), they are continuing to peruse their high school diplomas at Broadway.  Our project here is the creation of a feature length video documenting their inspirational personal stories.

Sinnott Elementary (year three)

Sinnott is located in Milpitas. We produce two plays at Sinnott in the coming years.  We will produce a drama in the fall and a musical in the spring.  While this elementary school does not have the issues our Downtown San Jose partner schools do, about half of our kids here are on financial aid.  The cost to Audacity at Sinnott is about $2000.

Audacity Explores the Jungle

Jungle Book - Sinnott

Jungle Book – Sinnott Elementary School

Audacity’s 2014-2015 season comes to a successful close with the production of Disney’s Jungle Book Kids at John Sinnott Elementary School in Milpitas.

Jungle Book was the fourth production produced with the amazing children at Sinnott.

The best thing about these shows is watching these children grow together as a team.  With cast age ranging from first grade to sixth grade, there is a natural mentoring and support structure that evolves among the kids that is always fun to watch.

The Disney Kids Edition shows provide the perfect balance of dialogue and musical fun for the whole cast.

The show was directed by the latest addition to the Audacity team, Khalia Davis.  Audacity Artistic Director, Samantha Pistoresi, was the Assistant Director with Mackenzie Knox (from Notre Dame High School) serving as Production Intern.

The Jungle Book set was painted by tech theater students at Notre Dame High School in San Jose.  Like all Audacity productions, these productions are truly community efforts. Audacity also received costuming support from our friends at Children’s Musical Theaterworks, Fresno.  Having community partners like CMT, Fresno and Notre Dame High School make programs like this one possible.
