   The photos above shows some action from last year's performance of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."   For many of the performers the Summer Theater is a family affair with participation of multiple generations in the shows.  Additionally over $100,000 has been donated to local charities from the performance revenue.

     I want to pass some information about one of the organizations receiving funds from the shows this year--Prepare for Success.  This organization operates through the Community Action Council and provides school supplies to Howard County students who need assistance in having the necessary school supplies.
As their website states:
    "Since 2002, PFS has equipped over 26,000 HCPSS elementary, middle and high school students with backpacks filled with essential school supplies, plus hundreds of loose supplies distributed throughout year.
    "Learning is challenging under the best of circumstances. By providing children the supplies their families cannot afford, you remove the disadvantage of their not having what they need to learn and of not fitting in with their classmates. You remove their anxiety of being a burden to their family. You help them prepare to succeed – in school and in life." --a HCPSS Pupil Personnel Worker"

   A $25 donation provides supplies to one student.
