Support arts in our schools!

The VHS Drama Club is one of the main drivers of extra-curricular arts-related activities for students on the New Kensington-Arnold School District.  Since our relaunch in the late 1990’s, we have been able to give over 1,000 students and scores of Alle-Kiski Valley community members an experience that they will receive nowhere else.

Every year, mounting successful fall and spring productions costs in excess of $30,000.  From costumes to make-up, props to sets, marketing and special effects, live theatre is one of the most magical experiences to become involved in, with something for everyone.  However, bringing this experience to our students, friends and families has become more and more difficult.

We are appealing to you, the community of supporters who has been with us every step of the way.  If you have attended one of our productions, helped to transform our stage or placed a costume on our backs and enjoyed your experience, please consider donating to our organization.  Any amount from $1 to $1,000 will go a long way in ensuring that the magic of theatre continues to thrive in our schools.

All donations will be recognized during our production of Peter Pan this spring. You may also keep your donation anonymous, should you wish. Thank you for your continued support of our organization and arts in our schools.

Every year the VHS Drama Club spring musical production costs in excess of $20,000, with nearly two-thirds (or more) of funding required to be raised by students and staff, therefore every little bit helps!  Please pass this invitation along to your family and friends – this is a great, easy way to support our organization.

Have an idea for another fund-raiser for our group?  Would you like to be involved with the VHS Drama Club?  Please get in touch with us here!  We’d love to hear from you!

We have a lot of events scheduled over the next few months – please keep an eye on our calendar to know what is coming up!
