teacher and students in future black box theater

Congratulations to the Arlington Middle School, recipient of the 2017 Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative Classroom Resource Grant. They were selected as one of 14 schools from more than 200 applicants to receive $16,900 to be able to purchase lighting equipment. They will convert a former media center into a black box theater so that they can hold productions of their student created "Language in Play" performances. The program has been teaching literacy through theater for 3 years and will now be able to share their plays in a full theatrical experience.
