Legacy Gifts are donated with the sincere intent of supporting theatre arts education while benefiting the entire LHE community. All gifts are approved by the LHPTA.
One of TAG's goals since it's inception in 2012 has been to encourage the love of reading within our LHE community. Each year we've chosen a play that originated as a book, obtained copies of that book to use as props for performances, then donated them to our LHE library on behalf of each year's cast and crew. Lovely copies of "Peter Pan", "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Bugsy Malone" as well as a collection of 20 Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss books commemorating our productions of Willy Wonka Jr. and Seussical Jr. have been donated in hopes that students may enjoy these timeless stories and the love of reading for years to come. Over the past six years, TAG has donated over 60 resource books to the LHE library to support our school's growing interest in theatre arts. This collection includes books on acting, auditioning, costume design, and theatre technical skills appropriate for students as well as resources for teachers and parents. Also included is a collection of over 36 DVDs that celebrate and expose our community to the art of the American musical. All items are available for checkout and may be found in the 700 section of the LHE Library or behind the main desk.
A custom built drum, made and used in our production of Peter Pan Jr., and accompanying stand were donated to the music department for the 2017-18 school year. The year previous, TAG donated one poster from each of our productions and a framed photo of the 2016-17 student body & staff, to be displayed in our temporary location at John Marshall campus. TAG has invested in a CD player, projectors, microphones, walkie talkies, and speakers to keep production costs down, and encourages & supports the use of this equipment for all other events at our school. In the 2014-15 school year, a digital piano in memory of Mr. Bolden, our beloved music teacher, to benefit our entire school community and share his love of music with future generations of Beavers.
