Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep High School

 End Notes 

From the Director's Pen


Wow...what a journey this has been!  I have been so honored and excited to serve as the Encore Sponsor this year.  I have been in constant awe with the amazing talent of this dynamic group of student artists.  Thank you to this amazing company for making my first year as the sponsor of ENCORE an overall wonderful experience.  I look forward to the seasons to come.


I am privileged to be able to marry my passion for educating students, which I have done in CPS for 10 years and my passion for the arts.


I would like to thank Mrs. Jackson, for giving me this opportunity as well as the Brooks College Prep community for giving me such a warm welcome.


Thank you to the wonderful Executive Board of Encore which made my job easy with their organization, forward thinking, ability to adapt and their penchant for being self-starters.


I have THEE BEST Student Stage Manager, Assistant Stage Manager, and Crew in Chicago.  I'm not exaggerating, they are AMAZING!!! Everything you see from set pieces, props, lights, costumes etc. was done by them.  


Thank You all for coming and supporting our students, they have worked very hard and my hope is that when you leave you will not only have been fully entertained but


“I hope that you will tell this tale tomorrow
It will help your heart remember and relive
It will help you feel the anger and the sorrow
And forgive …”


Love is Why … WE TELL THE STORY!
