I'm writing this letter
to let you know of an exciting opportunity for me this summer!
As you might know, I
have been interested in Musical Theater since around the age of 8, when I had
my first opportunity to be on stage in a local production of "Beauty and the
Beast!" Thus began my love of Broadway, theater, and singing...and recently,
I've been given an opportunity to expand my horizons in this area.
Earlier, in Fall 2012 I
was accepted to audition for a Theater Arts Summer Intensive, and my audition happened the end of March in Phoenix, Arizona.
Approximately 2000 actors, singers and dancers from across the country auditioned
for a spot in one of three week-long intensives to be held in NYC in July/August.
Only 100 performers are selected for each session (300 total) and I'm so
excited to be able to say I'm one of them, and have been accepted for all three
While attending, I will
have the amazing gift of working with industry professionals one on one,
including actors and directors, singing coaches and choreographers who are
currently working on Broadway...just a few streets over from where I'll be
attending my classes. In addition, I'll receive 10 master class instructions a
week in my majors (acting and voice), and at the end of the 3 weeks, be part of
a full scale, on-stage production showcasing my talents in front of casting
agents, directors and producers.
As you can understand,
though I have taken every opportunity locally, my opportunities are very
limited for experience at this level in Montana, and so I am very pleasedto
have been accepted for this chance to go study with people in the industry to hone
my talents. This is a dream come true for me!
My parents have made it
clear that part of achieving my dreams means I help take on the financial
responsibility in attending this intensive. Though I have saved up a little
bit, I have a long way to go! I'll be holding several fundraisers locally
(still in planning stages) but am also reaching out for help to friends and
family for financial help, and am hoping you would graciously consider
My goal is to raise
$5000.00 to cover my tuition and travel expenses.
Thank you so much for
