Don’t forget to support NNFAPP on Giving Tuesday

nnfapp logo

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, and Niles North Fine Arts Parents and Patrons, (NNFAPP) a 501c3 non- profit organization would love to receive your support. Most of our fine arts performances are free, so please consider joining or sending an additional donation to our organization. All of the funds we receive go directly to students in the form of grants to support their fine arts experiences. Recently we awarded almost 50 grants to students! With your support, we can do even  more.

If your company participates in a corporate matching program such as the United Way, Benevity or others, please select the Niles North Fine Arts Parents and Patrons as one of the recipients of matching dollars or donations. Then periodically, NNFAPP will receive those designated distribution checks. That money, in turn, goes to our Fine Arts students in the form of grants for private music lessons, master classes, creative workshops/seminars, art classes, dance classes and participation in outside ensembles and educational programs. This is an exceptional opportunity for you to help our students in a meaningful and generous way. The funds you are already donating come back to serve our community. Please see the ways to donate at the right side of our page. We thank you for your generosity and support.

Niles North Theater presents WE THE PEOPLE

Don’t miss the Niles North Theatre’s production of WE THE PEOPLE, devised and developed by Niles North students, directed by: Tyrone Phillips

Who are we and what makes us American? In a time of social and political unrest, future generations have a unique opportunity to redefine what it means to be American in this time and place in history. Using the stage as their mouthpiece and their experiences as research, students will create a new piece of performance art that shows us what they think America is – in hopes that it will help us understand what it could be. Come see this brand new work!

Thu., Nov. 16th, 10:00am – Free Community Performance
Fri. & Sat., Nov. 17 & 18, 4:00 & 7:00 pm
Drama Performance Center

Get your tickets online for Friday and/or Saturday at: https://search.seatyourself.biz/…/ac…/nntheatre/buy-tickets…
