Enrichment Fee Information

$250 per student

***Please read this entire page and then click the green button to complete the Enrichment Fee Acknowledgement Form. Once completed and signed your student will receive a DA Theatre jacket and water bottle.

The Douglas Anderson School of the Arts Enrichment Fee program is critical to bridging the gap between public school funding and the funding required to provide educational tools necessary for specialized levels of training for a performing arts school.  EACH ARTS AREA within DA has an enrichment fee to support each student’s arts department.


The 2023-24 Theatre Department Enrichment Fee is $250, and we use these funds in a variety of ways:

  • New this year: DA Theatre student jackets and water bottles

  • Subscription services for classroom materials (plays, scripts, scores, sheet music, tech design, etc.)

  • Classroom materials including printer ink, new faculty start-up supplies, and teaching materials

  • Consumable tech supplies and materials (wood, paint, etc.)

  • Supplemental funds towards guest artists and master classes

  • New Student meet and greet during Curtain Call

  • New Student Welcome Lunch during Orientation Week

  • Senior Banquet

  • Senior Collage Scholarships

  • District Thespians, and other field studies including registration assistance, travel and refreshments

  • Theatre Boosters’ website maintenance applications

  • Federal and state filing fees

  • QuickBooks, Payment processing fees (PayPal), and other administrative supply costs


Siblings receive a 50% discount on all siblings after the first student.  For example, if Jane and Mary are sisters in the Theatre Department, their total family Enrichment Fee is $375 ($250 for Jane and $125 for Mary). 


As mentioned above, new for the 2023-2024 school year, all Theatre Department students will receive a DA Theatre student jacket and water bottle. In order for your student to receive their jacket and water bottle, a parent or guardian must complete the Enrichment Fee Acknowledgement Form. This form will allow you to select a size for your student’s jacket and require you to e-sign, acknowledging that you have read and understand the definition of the Enrichment Fee and what it is used for. We do NOT require you to pay this Enrichment Fee prior to your student receiving their jacket. Please see the Enrichment Fee Acknowledgement Form for additional details.

While the Theatre Department relies heavily on these fees to fill funding gaps, we understand that full financial support may not be possible for your family.  Please consider these additional options to fulfill the Enrichment Fee requirement:

  1. Participate in department fundraisers (Poinsettia sales, program ads) and receive a portion of sales as credit towards your Enrichment Fee.

  2. Volunteer!  Every Booster volunteer shift fulfilled on behalf of a student is worth $20 of Enrichment Fee credit. 

  3. Email to make alternative or payment plan arrangements.
