Join the High Tea Society as they celebrate the success of the Second Annual High Tea Society’s “Charming By Design” Leadership & Life Skills program – an official site of Mayor Fenty’s Passport to Work Summer Program. The closing ceremony will be held Friday, August 22, 2008 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at Second Baptist Church; 816 Third Street, NW
The closing program will consist of scenes from The Wiz, Piano Lesson, A Raisin in the Sun, and The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, and will celebrate the achievements of 112 young ladies from the District of Columbia who participated in this challenging program designed to introduce them to careers in the fields of theatrical makeup, costume design, staging, set design, and acting. In addition to learning dramatic arts, students have also been educated in decorum, manners, dining etiquette, diction, grammar, and vocabulary by participating in bi-weekly Rhetoric and Charm School classes.
