Mary Poppins’ Crew Spare More Than Just a Tuppence

summit highMembers of the cast and crew of Summit High School‘s “Mary Poppins” presented a check for over $600 to Family Promise, the national organization that seeks to end family homelessness.The event was part of the Educational Outreach program, which connected the musical and the district’s curriculum, using the production as a teaching tool for the greater student body and local community.

Family Promise President, Claas Ehlers, and Director of Community Engagement, Sandra Rodriguez, visited the classroom of Anne Poyner, the show’s director, last week as the cast and crew debriefed on their five performances. The gift was a combination of funds that were collected at an Educational Outreach elementary school workshop. Participating students were asked to contribute spare “tuppence”into a fountain for change set up in the interactive lobby of the show. They also set up canisters around town. Congrats to the crew for showing such true generosity.
