Project Awake depends on your financial support

For a fraction of the cost of a typical Broadway production, we provide a program unlike anything students have experienced in their schools. Our non-profit mission ensures affordable access, but many schools are extremely underfunded. Your contribution helps us offset the cost for schools and enables us to make a huge impact in the lives of young people.

Give Us Your Lunch Money

Bullying robs students of joy, confidence, and a sense of belonging that they all need to thrive. We use the power of performing arts to reduce bullying and violence in Tennessee high-schools.

Your lunch money, just once per month, will help us continue doing that!
