American Theatre Wing LogoAmerican Theatre Wing/ Andrew Lloyd Webber Grant

Through the generosity of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the American Theatre Wing has invested a three-year grant of $1.3 Million to pilot and establish the Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative, which helps under-served, diverse students overcome barriers to pursuing a career in theatre. The Initiative provides public school drama teachers with the resources they need to nurture young talent in their schools, and gives training and university scholarships to underserved students, especially those from groups that are underrepresented in the theatre industry.

In 2018, South Plantation High School was fortunate to receive a grant that covered the cost of new mobile mirrors for our dance theater program. Here is a video of the announcement.



It's very important that we make this clear as it has come to our attention that, despite Director Jason Zembuch's request to football parent volunteers that they specifically ask whether a guest is visiting the school for the football game or one of our productions (currently The Crucible) so as to determine if they should collect a parking fee, these volunteers have not be doing that and in fact, one particular football parent volunteer told Director Zembuch that she was NOT going to do that because they need to raise $7k for uniforms!

This parent clearly had no consideration of the fact that our production of The Crucible costs money to produce too. In fact, we are in the hole nearly $8, we make back through ticket sales, playbill advertising, concessions and our own fundraisers. What we do not do is charge for parking and we do not expect our theater patrons to pay for parking to support the football program.

So please be aware....if you are attending a show and it happens to coincide with a football game, make sure you tell any football parent volunteer that asks you for a parking fee that you are there for a Paladin Playhouse theater production and that the Paladin Playhouse never charges a parking fee.

Keep Calm and Learn Sign LanguageTheater For The Deaf Style at South Plantation High School

You may not be aware but South Plantation High School is recognized as the only cluster school in the Broward School District for the deaf and hard of hearing. Because of this unique status, theater program director Jason Zembuch chooses to direct all productions in a style known as "Theater For The Deaf" with all mainstage productions being performed in both voice and sign language. Come to a show and experience a "Theater For The Deaf" production for yourself and discover the beauty of a performance in both voice and sign language!
