Dear Parents and Guardians/Caregivers & Participants of SingingWorks & Fairlawn MultiArtWorks:
We are excited to share an excellent opportunity that has just been brought to us at DramaWay. A small group of Grade 11 film students from Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts is interested in filming our SingingWorks Vocal Performance Thursday, Dec 8, 2016 as well as our Fairlawn Multi-ArtWorks Program on Saturday, Dec 10th, 2016. The students are doing a small film project for their school about how art programs like DramaWay benefit individuals with of all abilities, empowering them to push past perceived limitations imposed by society. Similar to the recent TV series “Born This Way”, the focus of their film will be to highlight the outgoing personalities and amazing abilities of our young adults as they pursue their passions and dreams.
The Coordinators of the Project are eager to interview any staff, volunteers, parents and students in the DramaWay programs who are interested in being part of their film. We know some of you may have already spoken to Becky Gold with her recent Thesis project, so we know this may seem to be overdoing it. But it’s our perspective that our performers have rare opportunities to be showcased, so we’d like to offer them chances such as this. We also know Becky’s project only included participants so this is a great way for Family Members and Caregivers to have their input included. If you are interested in taking part, it will only require about 5 minutes of your time. They hope to have you answer a few questions on camera onsite on the dates listed above. Questions will be provided in advance by email prior to Dec 8, 2016. Please contact Sarah by email no later than Dec 4th if you’d be willing to participate email@example.com .
Please note their film is only being developed for their school project. We’d like to be able to showcase this on our website and share via Social media once it’s complete. They will provide us with one copy which we’ll be permitted to share online. We hope everyone will agree to take part. For those who attend the programs and prefer to not be filmed, we can still include them in the class, we will simply film around it. Please contact the DramaWay office if you have concerns and for those who prefer NOT to be filmed. Simply call 416-614-1078 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for helping us bring more awareness to the community. Thank you in advance for your participation.
We have our order solidified now for our December 8th performance at 4:30 pm at Swansea Town Hall. Enjoy rehearsing when time permits!
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
DramaWay SingingWorks Vocalists
St. Olave’s Anglican Church
We are excited to announce that we have had a request by St. Olaves Church to have our SingingWorks Vocalists perform at their “Christmas Lights” event.
Here are the details:
Sunday, November 29th, at 5:00 pm – “Christmas Lights” – Featuring music, songs and entertainment.
At: St. Olave’s Anglican Church
360 Windermere Avenue, Toronto (1/2 block south of Bloor West)
The event starts with a Evensong service in the church at 4:00 pm, followed by tea and treats and then the entertainment, at 5:00 pm. The entertainment features festive music, poetry and readings from members of the parish and community groups and is non-spiritual in nature.
The atmosphere is informal and families and friends of those performing are most welcome to attend. There is no admission fee (just a goodwill basket).
Here is the link to the poster and St. Olave’s website http://www.stolaves.ca/201516Slide1.jpg
As of now, we are still assessing if we have enough numbers to run our SingingWorks and other DramaWay classes but it is still early. However, we’d like to plan accordingly and hope that you will too. For those planning to attend SingingWorks, we ask you save this date and plan to attend on this date. Our Fall term will include rehearsing two Holiday songs for this exciting Public Performance. We are delighted to get yet another request from the Community to hear our wonderful vocalists shine and share their talents!
Hope you can make it!
We are glad to have Helena back supporting DramaWay. This year she has joined us for our DramaWorks program on Tuesday nights.
Currently, Helena is a grade 11 Student at the York School. Some of her hobbies include: acting, singing, dancing, sports and reading. During the year Helena is very involved in her schools community. This year she was selected to be a student mentor for middle school students where she leads lessons, and activities for them, as well as she helps plan and organize fundraisers, and activities for the school community.
