BENEFITING: New Mexico High School Musical Theatre Awards
We're recruiting New Mexican theater artists currently working on Broadway, on tour, or in regional theatres to offer lessons by video to high school students in the state. The lessons these artists will cover include voice or dance techniques, acting tips, audition strategies, and much more. We'll work to offer lessons on stage management, design and production ideas — whatever our friends in the business are willing to teach.
These artists will record their videos and send them to us. We will upload them to a private sharing space and send links to New Mexico high school theatre teachers and students, making them, as much as possible, available only to New Mexicans. We're developing these videos as a way for New Mexico's drama teachers and students to add professional artists to their team at no cost to them.
Help us make this possible! So far, our recruitment efforts have turned up a few artists who will volunteer their services for us, but there will be expenses. Our artists may need an accompanist or a videographer, or need to rent a studio to adequately demonstrate their lesson. We want to cover those expenses to make sure these lessons are as good as they can be.
