The Shining Star Patrons Program is a community based program to help defer the costs of productions and student opportunities within the WHS Drama Department. We are dedicated to promoting quality theatre for our school and community, and our supporters over the years have made this mission possible. Donations and sponsorships help to provide further educational experiences that most of our students would never have the opportunity to do if not involved in theatre. Because of people like you, we have also been able to provide numerous scholarships and support for our current and past students; as well as building in opportunities for our future actors and actresses to be included through our youth involvement in shows; such as Mary Poppins and Annie.
With your support, you help us to continue to positively build character, promote team work and create a strong work ethic amongst our students at WHS.
The program funds the WHS Drama Department Scholarship Program. We are able to provide financial assistance to the students in their pursuit of higher education. Over the past 14 years, Pow Wow Players Booster Club has provided over $91,000 in scholarships for our students thanks to generous donations like yours.
In addition, we have generous families that sponsor our annual Memorial Scholarships - the Jennifer Stevens Scholarship and Derek Scott Memorial Scholarship.
Thank you Stevens and Whitten Families.
The Shining Star Patrons Program was developed to help defer the production costs and the many other expenses involved in the production of plays and musicals!
While our students sew their own costumes and build their sets; donations help offset the cost of materials needed.
We aim to provide the very best to our students so they can focus in on mastering their techniques.
During a trip year, students are able to sell Shining Star Packages to earn credit towards the student's expenses for a trip to New York City!
Yes, NEW YORK CITY!
Shining Stars have helped many students experience the thrill of Broadway with a learning experience like no other! Many times this is a students first time to experience life outside of Waxahachie!
Sponsorships also help provide additional educational trips to experience shows and helps to send our students to the annual Awards Show such as Broadway Dallas HSMTA and the Betty Lynn Buckley Awards!
We have some of the most dedicated community supporters!
Average attendance is 5000-6000 each year!
With professionally published playbills, online efforts, social media and ads on the "Big Screen", we feel that a reach of 10,000+ local Waxahachie area residents is likely.
Playbills are free with admission.
Shining Star Patron tickets can be reserved before each show by emailing our Shining Star Representative at firstname.lastname@example.org
