Hungry for Folk Music! | project by Ms. McKinley

From Mrs. McKinley:
I have a big Donors Choose project to shout about. I am bringing Colleen Reilly's play "Like I Am" to the SOA stage with the help of Bill Carson and Hazel Ketchum. I'm using Donors Choose to fund this project, and I need your help to pay these fantastic artists a living wage for their time. Please click on the links below to read more and to donate. *Sharing is also a fantastic help if you are unable to give dollars. Thank you for all of the support!

Ms. McKinley (teacher) |

Dear Parents and Guardians of SOA Students,

I am requesting musicians Hazel Ketchum and Bill Carson to visit my mixed grade level Theatre classroom to teach and perform music from our April play Like I Am by Colleen Reilly. Students will learn how the music of the time period would have enhanced the play, and they will actually become a "Greek chorus" band that interacts, plays instruments, and sings throughout the production.

Hazel and Bill plan on co-teaching in my classroom for the semester. It's important that I raise money as soon as possible, as my mission is to bring amazing humans to my classroom AND to pay them a living wage for their work. With your generosity, this is going to be one of the most interesting plays my students have ever been a part of: part music, part dramatic acting, and part puppet show!
