We’re a group of students at Carroll High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This spring, our drama department was planning to stage a performance of the teen edition of Marian, Or The True Tale of Robin Hood, a powerful LGBTQ+ inclusive play. Sadly, a group of anti-LGBTQ+ parents bullied school administrators into canceling the performance.
We’ve decided to fight back, staging our own independent production of the play. We want to show other communities around the country how to stand up to various parent groups bullying schools into canceling plays and musicals with LGBTQ+ content.
We have partnered with Fort Wayne Pride, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating the community about LGBTQ+ issues. That means your donations are tax-deductible and go directly to them to help pay for the costs of our production. We need your support to be able to pay for an alternative venue, rent necessary equipment, and cover our production costs.
We’ve already begun rehearsals for our performance on Saturday, May 20th – please consider donating today!
