SCHOOLED!

"The show was AWESOME! Thanks so much to everyone who made it happen! I've spent more and been entertained much less. It was funny and moving and full of heart. Kudos to all the performers!! I would buy a "The Goods" cd in a heartbeat!" -Lynda and Steve

"I went outside the box and thoroughly enjoyed it! What great stories and a fun band." -Jane

"What a fantastic show! We loved the show, the venue, the company... everything! I hope that you will consider doing this again." -Jerry and Amy

 

Thanks to everyone who came out to support WISH at SCHOOLED! A Night of Live Music and Original Readings. This WISH original event was inspired by a group of parents who wanted to share their writing and performing talents with our community as a fundraiser for the school. Everyone, including the audience and the performers, had a great time, and over $700 was raised for the Arts program at WISH!

The event took place at the award-winning Rogue Machine Theatre, which Variety has called, ""... one of the most ambitious and accomplished new theater companies in LA." In addition to our WISH parents, the up-and-coming musical group The Goods graciously donated their own time to perform between readings.

 

A HUGE Thank-You to our WISH parents who shared their stories with us, donating their time and talent to support our school:
