RHS Spring Musical “As You Like It” to Stream Online
from Ben Stuart, RHS Co-Director of Theatre and Dance Department
This Spring, Roosevelt Theatre is thrilled to bring you a musical experience unlike any other: a show that is part movie musical filmed around Greenlake and Roosevelt AND part live, real-time performance, streaming to your home! As You Like It is a modern musical update of Shakespeare’s classic comedy, full of soulful tunes and mistaken-identity hijinks! Performances are June 3, 4, 11, and 12. Tickets go on sale May 1 at rhstheatre.net. After purchase, you’ll be emailed a receipt with a link to click the night of the show. Once you’ve clicked the link, using any device, sit back and enjoy.
We are still working on a free, invite-only preview for the Golden Grads. Stay tuned for more updates on that and some other exclusive opportunities. (Check the GG website for more information: www.rhsgoldengrads.org. Also, Golden Grads can send an update by email, if you receive your GG Grapevine by email.)
If you would like to help keep Theatre alive at Roosevelt, Patron of the Arts is Roosevelt High School Theatre’s annual fundraising campaign associated with the musical. Our theatre productions are completely self-supporting because we don’t get any money from our school or district. Student fundraising and ticket sales help underwrite the theatre and dance curriculum each year and gives students the chance to work with local and national guest theatre professionals. Funds also cover costumes, tech equipment, licensing fees, and more. Every dollar makes a difference in the type of shows we are able to perform.
Our goal is to raise $20,000 in patron donations from friends, family, alumni, and theatre lovers in our community. To date, the students have raised $9,560 and could use a boost to get them across the finish line. Please consider helping us reach our goal by giving to our non-profit booster group, The Associated Friends of Roosevelt Drama (Tax ID 27-0604574)—employer matches welcome.
