Top Note Performing Arts COVID Recovery

It probably doesn't need to be said that being a theatre school this past year has been... tough. We are SO incredibly grateful to the families who have continued to support us and especially to the kids who fought through their Zoom Burnout to be in our classes every week and keep us afloat.

But to be perfectly frank, we are barely hanging on. Even with our summer programs, we are still only operating at partial capacity and reduced prices. The facilities we are using are currently supported by loans, generous discounts, and previous deposits.

To be able to raise even a small cushion would make all the difference in the world.



A small donation can buy us script xeroxes, batteries, cleaning supplies, craft materials, and all the little things Teacher Amanda typically ends up purchasing out of her own pocket.

A medium donation can help pay our utility bills.

A large donation can pay tuition for our scholarship students, support the rent on our studio, or pay fees on our performance venues.


Those of you who have been with us for a long time, know that money has always never been our top priority. Our number one priority has always been giving our students a place where they can feel safe and thrive as the best versions of themselves. Our second has been putting on a phenomenal show. But in order to continue that mission, we need the resources to support it. And every little bit counts.

We are incredibly grateful for whatever you're willing to give.
