Taking Theatre to Children in Nassau County Schools
Goal: Our goal is to present a 30 minute play at each of the Nassau County elementary schools.
Total Project Value: $800

Project Description
Amelia Community Theatre’s project involves taking a 30 minute play to elementary schools in Nassau County. Our greatest expense is for royalties for each performance. We have a troupe of adult actors called the Peppermint Players who perform for children and for seniors at assisted living facilities. We have traveled to preschools and elementary schools in Nassau County since 1981. However, we are not able to do this every year, due to resources. Funding would allow us to pay royalties for many more performances, thereby visiting more schools. We also need better sound equipment to use in the very large cafetoriums where we perform. We have often found that our play is the first live theatre that many of the children have ever seen. We encourage them to write and produce their own plays, using their imagination – creating their own costumes and sets. Our shows often have a gentle lesson, whether it is about recycling, tolerance, or accepting oneself. Funds will also be used for costumes, props, and set pieces. Everything we use for the play has to fit in our cars and be easily set up on the school stage.
