We are the only group at Oak Park that participates in Adopt-A-Family and I would love it if Oak Park Theatre can represent for the entire school, and be able to give a family a nice holiday this season. Donations will be accepted through Friday December, 17th for gift cards, and cash donations will be accepted through Wednesday, December 15th, as a gift card will need to be purchased.
Theatre is helping our students learn coping skills to handle disappointment when they don't get the role or position they dreamed of getting, stress management when it comes to meeting deadlines for productions, balancing activities with school and work, problem solving and resolution skills when working with a challenging individual, and teaching them empathy toward others. These are skills required for college and the workforce, even if theatre is not in their future. These skills are more vital to employers than education, truthfully! Please help to positively motivate our students towards optimism and crawling out of this COVID slump. We are a team and we have to work together to help everyone achieve life long goals and dreams.
