In living our motto, Performance With A Purpose, the Stage Notes Foundation is proud to announce additional contributions to our community.

  • We have continued our commitment to The Watertown Urban Mission by collecting 453 school supplies for their backpack program at our production of A Chorus Line.
  • We are making a donation of $750 to Paws4Potter, a canine walk to support canine cancer.
  • $500 to The Antwerp Food Pantry
  • $200  as a hole sponsor for the Friends of Farm Memorial Golf Tournament which benefits the Patrick R. Farmer Scholarship of the Arts
  • Earlier this year we purchased two ABC Fluency Kits for the Malawian Early Readers program through the Malawi Early Literacy Team.

 

During our school year our students were proud to volunteer for WPBS at their All-Star Auction and Family Fun Day at Boldt Castle. Our students shared their talents at the Samaritan Medical Center volunteer recognition dinner, The Heart Walk recognition event and Lessons and Carols at St. Patrick’s Church. We volunteered at Watertown Lyric Theater’s production of The Addams Family and sang the National Anthem for the Watertown Fire Department’s Charity Hockey Game. 

Stage Notes began in 2009 out of a desire to teach our students that their talents can make a difference in our community. Ten seasons later, thanks to families like YOU, Stage Notes has donated over $50,000 to local organizations. It is because of YOU that we are able to provide students with rich theatrical experiences, as well as life lessons in philanthropy. THANK YOU from all of us at Stage Notes!

I hope you are as proud of your accomplishments as we are of you!! WAY TO GO TEAM!

 

 

Much love and respect always,

Ticia Aumell, Artistic Director & the Stage Notes Board of Directors
