1st Annual Oakland Acorn Project David j El'Hatton JR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP Spaghetti Dinner
This is a scholarship program named by the Oakland Center's Acorn Project Youth Board of Directors for local performer and director David El'Hatton. The Acorn Project is one of a kind program for high school-aged teenagers that fully immerses them in all aspects of theatre. With the help of professional theatre mentors, they get hands-on experience in directing, choreographing, light, sound, and set design, and construction.
To give the kids full exposure to how theatre works, they also design and implement the marketing and promotions, create budgets, and manage a bank for numerous junior shows during a season around the theatre program.
