Hear Our Song - A Benefit Cabaret

In support of the students of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School

Please join The Studio@620 in supporting the students of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School and attend "Hear Our Song-A Benefit Cabaret" on Tuesday July 14, 2009.  The goal of this community fundraising event is to raise the last $5000 needed toward the Pinellas County Center For the Arts at Gibbs High School trip to the American Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. Admission is $10, additional donations will be gratefully accepted.  Please make checks payable to: PCCA Enhancement Fund - memo Scotland trip

These students of PCCA at Gibbs have raised over $50,000 through volunteering and performing thus far.  They are now at a crossroads and need to raise this last additional amount. 

The American High School Theatre Festival is the largest and most prestigious arts festival in the world. Long recognized for its entertaining and innovative productions, PCCA was one of fifty schools selected by the AHSTF Board of Advisors to represent the United States in 2009.

Each August, Edinburgh, Scotland becomes the most magical and exciting place on earth as performing artists from all over the world come to Scotland to take part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  The whole city becomes a stage and visitors can view performances everywhere from playgrounds to conference rooms to city parks to churches. The Fringe Festival includes over 1,800 different performances of music, theatre, dance and comedy. Cast and crew of Songs for a New World (Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown) leave for Europe in August 2009. Part of the trip includes a stay in London for three days where students will see a West End show as well as tour the famous sites of the city. Students then will take a train to Edinburgh, Scotland where they will perform "Songs for a New World".
