High School students from the Houston area will present an arts and dance celebration benefiting Pink Ribbons Project, Houston’s arts-based breast cancer organization, on December 12, at 6:00 p.m. at The Kinkaid School’s Brown Auditorium. The event will feature performances by Episcopal High School, Houston Ballet II, King’s Dancing Center, The Kinkaid School, Lamar High School, Page Parks Modeling Agency, Several Dancers Core, St. John’s School and Travis High School.
The Brown Goes Pink” event was envisioned by three sophomores at the Kinkaid School- Claire Valera, Sam Rogers, and Jarod Becker: “Even at our age, all three of us have been touched by breast cancer. We wanted to spread awareness of the cause to our peers throughout the Houston community. So, on December 12, some of the city’s best young artists will take the stage for the inaugural performance of The Brown Goes Pink – an arts and dance celebration created and presented by Houston’s next generation”.
“The Brown Goes Pink” is the students’ take-off on the “Pink at the Brown” gala, which Pink Ribbons Project presented earlier this year at the Wortham Center’s Brown Theater. That historic event brought every member of the Theater District together to perform on one stage for a cause for the first time ever. In a similar fashion, “The Brown Goes Pink” will take place at the Brown Auditorium at The Kinkaid School and will feature another unique collaboration.
