Help Joseph Go Back to School

Donation protected
So, I have an announcement to make.

Drumroll please!

I got accepted to Circle in the Square Theatre School's Musical Theatre Conservatory for fall of this year! 

Between 2017 and the spring of 2020, I did approximately 400 auditions with about 4 callbacks. When the world hit the giant pause button that was Covid, I decided I wanted to go back to school and improve my ability as an actor. 

I took more online classes, did voice lessons, even worked with an amazing acting coach to prepare for graduate school auditions. While I was not accepted to any of those programs, there was one school that I had neglected - Circle.

It had undergone some immense changes over the last two years (and I know a few people who went to the program), so I figured I'd give it a shot. 

They swiftly called me back, and equally swiftly was I accepted to their program.

Now comes the part where you help out. We gotta pay for this!

Anna is working full-time, but most of her income will go towards our living expenses. The amount asked for is about 1/2 of the tuition for 1 of my 2 years. I haven't gotten my financial aid offer yet, but with this help, paying for school wouldn't be an issue at all.

Thank you for your help, and thank you for believing in me! 

First I'll take classes underneath broadway, then the next stop: the Broadway Stage!
