After School Musicals Needs Your Help to Put On A Phila School District Wide Project

After School Musicals
Presents
HAIRSPRAY
A Philadelphia School
District Wide Project
Greetings,
My name is David Pershica and I am writing to you regarding
an exciting new endeavor that I am spearheading, that I thought you would be
interested in supporting.
I have started a new non-profit organization that provides
arts programming for Philadelphia High School students that don’t have
performing arts programming in their schools.
In May of this year, I am presenting the musical Hairspray that will be performed and
designed by high school students.
My mission is three fold:

1.    
To provide high school students the opportunity
to design and perform in a musical.

2.    
To present the production at a high school that
needs to upgrade their performing arts facilities.

3.    
To give the students the opportunity to work
side by side with theatre professionals from Philadelphia and New York City.

This inaugural production will be
presented at the Paul Robeson High
School
in West Philadelphia. 
So far, I have the support of the
Philadelphia School District, the PTO, 
District Community Partnership program, and over 175 students have sent
me emails asking to be involved in the production.
This is a huge endeavor that
requires a lot of financial support. 
This new non-profit is based on a business model that will leave us with
a hefty surplus.   Our initial start up
costs are $20,000, but we will end up with $30,000 by closing night of the
show.
Because our business model is
based on support from the community, I’d like to ask you make a donation on
this Giving Tuesday.  Just click the link below.  Any amount is greatly appreciated.  And
remember, no donation is too large!
Deadline for this donation drive,
is Friday, December 6 at noon.
Thank you for your generous
support of this exciting new project.
Best wishes for the holiday season,
David Pershica
