I’m working on a pilot program with the Educational Theatre Association, called JumpStart Theatre. It’s a program designed to build sustainable theatre programs in underserved middle schools. The first three schools were chosen earlier this year (Holmes Middle School, James N. Gamble Montessori, and Finneytown Middle School) and we are now accepting applications for the second class of schools!
If you know someone at a Cincinnati-area middle school without a theatre program, please encourage them to apply. The application (and more info) is located here: https://www.schooltheatre.org/programs/jumpstarttheatre
If you have questions or want to receive monthly updates about our progress with the first three schools, contact Ginny Butsch at firstname.lastname@example.org. To support JumpStart Theatre with a donation, visit https://www.schooltheatre.org/support/donate.
Also, if you have any questions about this program please feel free to contact me.
