A Midsummer Night's Dream - June 07

Philips Academy Charter School


First and foremost, we would like to thank all the parents, teachers, administrators, and students who supported the eighth-grade production through participation in our MANY fundraisers. We would not be able to fund our show if not for you all. Thank You!

A special thank you to the class of 2019 from Ms. Williams for being willing to push yourselves outside your comfort zone and working very hard to pull this show off. I thank you for the weekends, the recesses and the after schools. Thank you for doing a scene over and over again even when you are sick and tired of hearing me say, “again!” Thank you for the sets, the costumes, the documentary, and the performance. I love you all very much!

Great appreciation to the directorial team members Madinah, Elise, and Jelani! Thank you for rising to the occasion and sacrificing your time to execute this vision.

A great big thank you to Mrs. Ito for your tireless effort and strength. For your skills with a needle and thread and your unending benevolence! We do not know what we would do without you.

To Mr. Porta, Mr. Farrell and Ms. Macc., the entire cast and crew would like to express their appreciation and love for all that you have done to get this production off the ground. You had never refused to lend a helping hand even when you were busy. Thank you!

Mr. Quijada, thank you for jumping in and saving the day with your excellent skills with the sound equipment.
Mr. Alessandra, thank you for allowing us into your space and being willing to lend an extra pair of eyes.

Mr. Louis Vega, thank you for being there when we needed you most.

Ms. Curran and the business office, thank you for helping us handle last minute check requests and reimbursements.

Ms. Eileen Turgott, thank you for coming out on a Saturday to arrange music for our show.

Ms. Higgins, thank you for helping out with make-up and being willing to share your paint with us.
Thank you to the custodians for cleaning up after us and making sure that we have a safe and clean space in which to work.

To all the teachers in the middle school who had to cover a recess, lunch or stayed with their class all day to free up time for rehearsal: A GREAT BIG THANK YOU!

Once again to the graduating class of 2019, Shakespeare said it best in Hamlet: “Lord, we know what we are, but know not what we may be.”  I know very well who you are in this very moment but the unseen future you is a mystery. What I do know is that you have been given the right foundation to go forward and do great things.

“Adieu, parting is such sweet sorrow!”
Ms. Williams
