We Are the Drum

CAPITA (City At Peace In The Arts) Productions is non-profit and 100 % of your donation now will be tax deductible for 2019.  All donations to our GoFundMe campaign  go to support the production of "We Are the Drum 2020". We do not charge fees for the students to be instructed in the production of theatre arts and in performing in a live performance. Most students have had no experience prior to their participation.  Thank you in advance for your support. Every donation helps. If you would like more information, please send an email to [email redacted]. We are on our way, but we still have a long way to go to meet our goal and to be able to mentor 100 students for 2019-2020. 

The Cast and Crew of "We are the Drum" send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported our 2018 - 2019 campaign. Your donations helped us share African-American history & culture with students and community members. 

CAPITA Productions kicks off our 30th year with a challenge: To meet our goal to mentor 100+ students during the 2019 - 2020 school year, we need to raise $50,000. We are on our way, but we still have a long way to go.

We will have after school workshops and rehearsals.
 $100 provides a week of healthy snacks for 10 students. 

 Students  come from schools throughout the Milwaukee area.
A $500 donation supports safe student transportation to and from sites. 

As a part of the community, businesses and organizations have an important role to play.  Can you match the $5,000 pledged for 2019 - 2020 by a small business owner from Central Wisconsin?

Any size donation will be appreciated.  Every donation helps us provide theatrical instruction, homework help & mentoring to families throughout the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Through community theater, CAPITA teaches literacy, teamwork, confidence and personal responsibility.
