REPORTING · 6th April 2011
My name is Linda Horianopoulos and I am writing this letter on behalf of the Mount Elizabeth Secondary School Drama Club. This past year I wrote a script for a play that I went on to direct and stage manage called Warrior Variation. The Drama club brought this play, along with its cast and crew of eight, to the Northwest Drama Zones in Prince Rupert. We were chosen as the Best Reserve Production, meaning that if the winning production were unable to attend provincials, we would go in their place. This year, for the first time, the provincial organization has opened up three performance slots to the Reserve Productions. We have since been accepted to perform at Sears-British Columbia Drama Festival 2011 in New Westminster from May 5-8. This is an incredible opportunity for us to attend workshops, performances and to compete; an opportunity that has never been available to our Drama Club before. Attending provincials would not only enhance the abilities of those who are going, but it would also pave the way for the future success of our club.
Unfortunately, as students, the cost for us to attend is more than we can afford. We have already begun fund-raising by hosting an in town performance as well as doing concession for other performances at our theatre. We also hope to receive the support of various organizations within the community. If your organization were willing and able to make a donation of any size, it would be greatly appreciated. This would make the trip possible for those students who otherwise could not afford to go.
We estimate that this trip will cost us over $13,000 dollars if we do not receive community support. We understand that it may not be economically feasible for every organization to donate, but we ask you to look at what may be possible for your organization at this time. Even small donations will make a huge difference in our ability to attend.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter and for considering supporting the Mount Elizabeth Secondary School Drama Club. We hope to hear from you soon so we can know where we, as a club, stand financially, and so we can publicly thank all of our supporters.
