Vandalized High School Drama Department Could Use Our Help!

July 24th, 2008

Many of you know JBB Fantastic Fan Mike Magbaleta, who has been a frequent contributor to the Blog and Forum.

Well, Mike emailed me about a situation that just occurred early last Friday morning at his twin son’s high school. For some sick reason, an individual or group of persons decided to torch a storage locker that the Drama Department uses for props and costumes. Their Fall musical, Gypsy was supposed to kick off next week with a “meet and greet” with their new Drama teacher/director as well as a workshop for potential cast members. The school is still wondering about preparations for the musical with the loss of props and costumes.

The San Mateo Daily Journal has a full report on the recent vandalism at Hillsdale High School.

Mike is working with other parents to help raise money for the school’s drama department. If you would like to help the Hillsdale High School Drama Department out, here’s the address: Mike B. Magbaleta, c/o Hillsdale High School Drama Boosters, 1900 South Norfolk Street, Suite 150 San Mateo, California 94403. Thank you!

  1. Thanks so far to those who have helped us with contributions towards purchasing new costumes and rebuilding set props for our Fall Musical, Gypsy. Applause to Danielle Gaudio-Lalehzar (special thanks to “GAVA”), our “fearless leaders” Susie & Dale, “Tiggerbelle” and various casts of major off and on-Broadway musicals. It’s not too late to help our future Broadway actors and actresses continue to follow their dreams! Thanks again!
