There's no doubt about it. Educational arts programs are almost always in crisis mode. No matter what city or state you're in, arts courses always seem to be under-funded and in dire need of support, and sadly the lack of funding usually has a disastrous effect on the student population. Some get far less exposure to the arts than they want or need. Others get no exposure at all as their school's arts programs vanish.
McCallum High School in Austin is a rare exception. Our unique Fine Arts Academy thrives despite the current economic pinch, but we are always in need of additional funding to make ends meet.
Charitable contributions are crucial to our mission of producing world-class educational theater while serving Austin with our renowned educational programs.
25 percent of MacTheatre's annual operating budget comes from donor contributions.
These gifts make it possible for us to provide our audiences with the definitive Theater experience and give our student artists the resources they need to create the best possible work with the highest standards of excellence.
Gifts received from McCallum's 42nd Street- Lullaby of Broadway Campaign will meet the greatest needs of the organization which include 300+ dazzling showbiz costumes for the 60+ cast of 42nd Street and spectacular scenic materials for 42nd Street's 20+ lavish scene changes.
Please consider giving a tax-deductible gift.
Your support is crucial to the success of our productions, programming and students.
