Chelsea Youth Theatre
Ever since Tyler told us about your trip, my family and I have been thinking about what causes we would love you guys to support. We wanted to send you a challenge from Australia!
I have recently rediscovered my love for theatre and have started directing and producing shows at university. But my love of theatre grew from all the drama classes I did when I was younger. Luckily, I was fortunate enough that my parents could afford to send me to these classes and take me to see shows. But not everyone has these opportunities.
I jumped on the web and started researching theatre groups in the US and came accross the Apollinaire Theatre Company in Chelsea, Massachusetts. For the past 8 summers the company has put on free theatre shows in a local park but due to financial troubles could not this year. The company also had to cancel spring classes which form part of the Chelsea Youth Theatre program they run.
I think that the Chelsea Youth Theatre is such as great cause you guys could support! Drama classes not only improve childrens’ self confidence, they are so much fun and an incredible way to make great friends. The proudest moments of my life have been seeing a show grow from nothing with the help of my dedicated friends. To help give kids in Chelsea a chance to be a part of this would mean the world to me!
All the best for the rest of the trip! Stay safe and have a rad time.
Lots of love,
Hannah and the Bruce/Watt Family
