BENEFITING: TRAVELING PLAYERS ENSEMBLE INC
Traveling Players Ensemble (TPE) is a non-profit theatre company dedicated to bringing great theatre into the great outdoors through a thriving summer camp and year-round acting classes and workshops in clasical theatre training for high school and middle school students. Selected by the NEA as a model Summer Arts Program, TPE attracts students from across the DC Metro region. A major part of the summer camp experience is our signature purple buses. Each bus includes a bus counselor whose job it is to ensure a safe and fun ride by organizing games and bonding our community of teen performers. Buses are used to get the campers to and from camp every day, and to transport our traveling troupes to performances throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. One of our buses unexpectedly broke down and can't be fixed, so we have to replace it immediately. Help us keep our fleet intact and keep our campers on the road this summer season!
