This Week...

April 12, 2010

So you say that you like to support education! Good for you. I’m going to give you a chance to see something terrific. I don’t know if you know about the kids over at Dearborn High, Edsel High, and Fordson High who attend the video production program over at Dearborn High under the direction of Kurt Doelle, but they are going to have a special showing of "Internal Affairs", "Stealing Graduation", and "True Story: a short animation" for two days at the Guido Theatre this coming Wednesday and Thursday at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $5.00.

You’re going to be amazed. You’re going to say, “…kids can’t do that!” First of all the studio that they have is incredible. It’s developed thanks to a 2 million dollar donation by Michael Berry and some other citizens who have knocked themselves out to give our kids the very best production studio in the country. And of course the productions that they do are amazing. They look just like Hollywood productions.

So… the show goes on at seven and you can get tickets at the door. Take your family to see this. It will be worth your while. The kids in the video production are youngsters. They are only fifteen, sixteen, and seventeen years old and they produce productions that will knock your socks off.

So check it out. There are three productions that they have done. They have a big screen there and they have it in full color and sound. I think that you are really going to like what is going down at WDHS Video. You can find out more at

Alberta and I will be there and we are inviting some of our friends. We hope that you will come and see this show too.

Come on you are big supporters of the school. You support football, basketball, and soccer. Please, come out and support the arts.

Once you see it be sure to let the school board and the super know how great it was. Arts are something they want to do away with along with libraries. give everyone the support they need expecially kids that can't excell in academics.

Russ, What a fantastic job Kurt Doelle and his students did! The time and energy they invested is proof of what students will do if they are given the opportunity to excel. Being fortunate enough to have worked with some of those students, I can tell you personally they are some of our finest and deserve the greatest investment that we can make in the arts. It was wonderful to see you also.

WDHS students may be a motley crew, but they are definitely some of the most creative, inspired, and talented people I've ever met. Without the program, a lot of us wouldn't have been motivated or driven to do more than barely graduate. Thanks to Mr. Gibb & Mr. Doelle & Mr. Shaw (in my day) we were pushed to do something more. I'm truly saddened to hear that these will be the last big productions rolling out of the studio we've all come to know as a second home.

I'd also like to add that Mr. Atkins has been an invaluable part of WDHS productions. Much like the afforementioned men: a great teacher, mentor, and friend.
