Starting Arts Online Campaign

Starting Arts is mining the creativity of our artists and staff to develop innovative online curricula. We are creatively utilizing web-based rehearsal and virtual performance opportunities for our theatre productions as well as pioneering online visual and performing arts classes designed to fully engage students’ minds AND bodies. Starting Arts is uniquely positioned to guide schools and their students towards this new educational paradigm – But we need your help to make it happen!

Your Thoughts

I am so appreciative of the efforts of you and all the Starting Arts staff to continue with Bye Bye Birdie rehearsals via Zoom and to bring the show to completion in a virtual format! The caring effort and creativity that you all have put forth is so deeply appreciated. It lifted my heart to see Ben become energized when he was able to attend Zoom rehearsals and connect with the show, the staff, and his friends.  Clara also enjoyed peeking in and greeting everyone occasionally! It was a terrific way for the kids to have connection and purpose during this very unusual situation.

I want to say thank you again for doing everything you were able to, with Bye Bye Birdie as the tides changed on us all, and life as we knew it.

Guinevere had an amazing time both in person and virtually.

Yesterday, I sat in a meeting and heard someone say, “teaching music lessons over the Internet is impossible.”

If only they knew how you all made the “impossible,” very possible.

We appreciate Starting Arts very much. Guinevere is excited to come back again very soon.

We support Starting Arts and look forward to future productions. Stay safe, healthy and sing through the storm!

I just wanted to thank you so much for pushing me outside my box in Bye Bye Birdie and having me do things that I didn’t know I could. I had an amazing time in the show and I just wanted to thank you for everything you did. Thanks again.
