Did you know the typical budget for a high school musical ranges from $5,000 - $10,000? These costs include licensing fees, materials and equipment required to build sets, costumes, professional assistance with choreography and technical lighting and sound equipment. Given tight budget constraints, the school district provides very little monetary support. The Company self-funds the majority of productions through ticket sales, concessions, fundraisers, advertising, and booster support.
Your generosity is critical to continue building on an award-winning program where students can:
