Make The FA Winter 2018 HS Show Be “Shrek: The Musical”
Shrek the Musical was an incredible show that was introduced to Broadway in 2008. Based on the award winning movie Shrek (2001), this show is loved by many. This show has amazing musical numbers such as “Big Bright Beautiful World”, “Don’t Let Me Go” and “I Know It’s Today.” It also, has many great and comical lead roles, such as Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, Lord Farquhad and Dragon. “Shrek” has a strong ensemble and supporting roles, allowing many students to participate in this wonderful production. The shows themes of community, acceptance and being yourself are all inline with our schools Quaker values. This show is very family friendly and would be appropriate for the diverse ages represented by the students in Friends Academy. For these reasons and more I and many other Friends Academy students believe that “Shrek: The Musical” would be the perfect show for the Friends Academy High School show next year. I respectfully ask for you to thoughtfully consider this request.
Petition to Georgia Theatre Company
Say "No" to Georgia Theatre Company. Ellijay, Ga
If you haven't visited little Ellijay, Georgia, please do. We are a small town nestled in the North Georgia Mountains. We have chicken houses, apple houses, in which, we have our annual Apple Festival in October. As far as shopping we have a small square which houses antique stores, the court house, and a barber shop. We have a supportive local community that believes in keeping Ellijay our small little town. Some may wonder what we do to pass the time. If we're not front porch sittin', we go to our locally owned and operated movie theater, "East Towne Cinemas". Theater is owned and operated by a local, sweet family who not only operate the theater but have become good friends and family to the locals. East Towne Cinemas have the best prices and always show the latest movies! We, as locals, have been informed that in the upcoming year, 2018, there will be a large, rather unnecessary, theater being built. We believe in local community, putting money back into our community and tradition, like the one we have by visiting our local family owned theater. As a community, we ask for your support in helping keep Gilmer alive. We ask you sign this petition in letting, "Georgia Theatre Company", know we do not want their theater here, nor will we support their business.

Petition to The Chicago Theater Community
Stop Inviting Hedy Weiss To Your Productions
The Chicago theater community is comprised of a diverse group of artists who have worked hard to create a safe, healthy environment to practice art in. Over the last few years especially, we have joined together to make it clear that inappropriate language or behavior does not have a place within our community, and that prejudice of any kind will not stand. Hedy Weiss, theater critic for the Chicago Sun-Times, has proven that she is not willing to work with us to create a positive environment. She has proven this repeatedly with the racism, homophobia, and body shaming found in her reviews. She has proven this by never, not once, apologizing to a party injured by her words. Since we believe that it is the duty of everyone in our community to uphold our very high standard for conduct, we formally request that your company not invite Hedy Weiss to the run of any present or future productions. To be clear, we are not calling for a ban on Ms. Weiss attending performances. We are simply requesting that she not be given a ticket for free. If she wishes to present her damaging views, we ask that she pay for the privilege. Those of us who believe your action is necessary would greatly appreciate your support in our effort to make sure that the integrity of our community is preserved. Thank you for your attention to this matter, and we hope that you agree to stand in solidarity with the artists that you work with and employ. Best Regards, The Chicago Theater Accountability Coalition
