How will the funds be used?

The Austin High School Theatre Department receives a basic per-student stipend from AISD for necessary supplies, but those funds do not come close to covering the many expenses required to run an award-winning theatre department!

Starting this school year, we are instituting a Fair Share fee of $75.00 for all theater production students. In exchange, parents will receive a free membership to the booster club at the Supporter level ($25 value), and their student will receive a newly updated CREW t-shirt ($15 value).

Ways to pay the Fair Share Fee:

The Red Dragon Theatre Booster Club is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 2004 by the theater directors and parents to provide moral and financial support to the theater department and the Red Dragon Players. 

The booster club has organized fundraisers, hired guest directors, provided funding for student scholarships to attend summer workshops, purchased costumes and equipment, and sponsored the annual Awards Gala.
