This educational project was made by over 130 fine arts students at Green Hope High School in the 2020-2021 school year. Because of COVID-19, they never all met in person. This movie/musical was not only a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience, but also an artistic passion project for all involved. The purpose of this project was to share with you how important human connection is to "live performance." Through famous Broadway songs and original stories woven through the music, our students were able to express how teenagers & artists struggled and endured through the worst of the pandemic. Due to copyright laws, the viewing of this project is free for educational purposes. However, if you love the work of our fine arts students in this movie, please consider making a $20 donation per viewer to our fine arts program. Please consider donating more if you are able. Your donation goes to directly to our fine arts program and supports our students' learning opportunities for next year and the years to come. Thank you so much for your consideration, and we sincerely hope you enjoy "Connections."
To the Green Hope Theatre students, parents, & community,
For the past 9 years I have had the honor to serve as your theatre arts teacher. It has been an experience I will never forget. While here, I had the privilege to work with some of the best students, colleagues, and volunteers a theatre teacher could ask for. I would like to give a special thanks to the Green Hope Fine Arts Boosters for always supporting me and my program throughout my tenure at Green Hope. I will be moving into the theatre arts position at Apex Friendship High School beginning in the fall of the 2021-2022. I am proud to announce the new theatre arts teacher at Green Hope High School is Mr. Peter Comperatore. Mr. Comperatore is coming from Sanderson High School and is a truly amazing theatre arts teacher. He has a reputation for being one of the best directors in RTP. I am so excited to see where Mr. Comperatore is going to take this program; it could not be in better hands.
So for now, rather than say "good bye," I will simply say this: Thank you for letting me share my love of theatre with you, thank you students, thank you parents, and I will see you soon.
Mr. Jamie Gorski
Thank you to all who auditioned! If you do not wish to accept your role, you need to email Mr Gorski (firstname.lastname@example.org) within the next 24 hours. There will be a mandatory full company meeting on Monday. All are expected to be there--no exceptions.
Green Hope Theatre Company:
I know that many of you have questions about this school year and how we will operate our theatre program. This year will certainly be different and in the spirit of learning and exploring new ideas, the main theme of this year will be: The Power of Theatre Through Different Mediums! This will be the theme we will see throughout all the elective classes, clubs, shows, and more. Regardless of the difficulties, I am truly excited for this year and I encourage all of you to embrace the challenges with me! Theatre often thrives when faced with new challenges. Let's rise to the occasion and do something extraordinary for our school, our community, and ourselves! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Mr. Jamie Gorski

We hope everyone will join us during the weekend of March 12-14 to see The Wizard of Oz. Again, thank you so much for sharing your talents with us.
