No classes on January 21st - Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Marina Del Rey Middle School and Performing Arts Magnet

Winter Holiday Show: Marina Gives Back

The event benefited local community service organizations including Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the Westside Food Bank. The goal of this production was to inspire, through song, dance and dramatic readings, the idea of charitable giving.

The program featured a cast of students from Marina Del Rey Performing Arts Magnet in a “pay it forward” themed production that also included many special guest performers. Mindless Behavior who just signed with Interscope Records brought the house down.

Proceeds from tickets sales to this first-ever semi-formal event at the school were shared with local charities selected by Marina’s students. Audience members received a discount on the ticket price in exchange for a donation to the school’s canned-food drive.

In addition, audience members received gift bags that include important resource information about participating in greater Los Angeles community service organizations. Representatives from these non-profits were present to answer questions about how families could become more involved in community activities, especially during the upcoming holiday season.

A special reception preceded the show. VIP seating included refreshments served at reserved tables. A special red carpet step-and-repeat photo-op entrance provided an opportunity for celebrity guests to welcome the arriving audience.

Tickets went on sale December 1. Reserved seating is $20.00. General Admission for adults is $10.00. Admission for students and children under 18 was $5.00.
