Hi! We are the theatre department at Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston, Texas (the #10th best high school in America.) We have been invited to perform at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. This festival is the largest art festival in the world and exemplifies all the talent that different countries have to offer. The donations will be used to send a group of 15 high schoolers to the festival, so they can perform Holy Day by Andrew Bovell. This is the same show that these students are taking all the way to state in the UIL texas competition on May 25th. We are needing to raise this $80,000 in the next 8 weeks to reach the payment deadline in June and secure our position for the festival in August. Reaching this goal is significant because many kids need all of the funds donated in order to go to this festival. The Fringe Festival is a major oppurtunity because Carnegie is one of only three schools from North America invited to go and perform. Going to this festival would be a huge learning experience for all the kids and parents wanting to go because it would allow them to see a variety of art events and cultures that are not available at home. This is also super important to the kids in this department because it allows for their passion and dedication to theatre to be recognized on an international level rather than in a 105 seat theatre.
Any amount of money donated would be extremely appreciated! We are all so excited to go to the Fringe Festival!!!!! #carnegiegoesfringe

I would like to thank everyone who has donated to us kids in these past few months. Unfortunately, we will no longer be traveling to Scotland. Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to meet our fundraising goals. Although we are not going to Fringe, I am so proud of Holy Day and becoming State Champions. It was an honor to work with everyone in the cast and crew and Mr. Savage! I am thrilled to think about the future for CVHS theatre.

If you have questions about refunds, please contact me.

Again, I'd like to thank everyone involved!

Just to keep everyone updated on the SHOW we are taking to Fringe: Carnegie Vanguard High School just won 1st place at the University Interscholastic League in the 6A conference with the show Holy Day by Andrew Bovell. This has been an amazing journey for all of the cast and crew and I could not be prouder to have worked on this show with such incredible, inspiring people.
