    Jason Hayes: Drama Teacher & Coach

    in Entertainment

    Jason Hayes joins the show tonight to talk about their GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds to take students in their program to the UK this summer to perform!

    Call 323 657-1493 to ask questions or join in the fun!
     


    Jason is the Director of Theatre and Lead Teacher for Arts, Media and Entertainment at James Monroe High School in North Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles. With productions that include, Oedipus the King, Wiley and the Hairy Man, Zombie Prom and School House Rock Live! along with on campus festivals that include Comedia Del Arte, Shakespeare and traditional Folkloric dance, his students have been selected by the American High School Theatre Festival as one of only 40 schools from North America to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland this August, 2015. While his students are severely economically disadvantaged and labeled "at risk" for a myriad of reasons, they have honed their energies into theatre arts and created for themselves the opportunity of a lifetime in their performance of Romeo y Julieta at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. 


    Romeo y Julieta is a bi-lingual Romeo and Juliet translated by the students. Using Shakespeare's language and spoken in Original, Elizabethan Pronunciation along with colloquial Spanish, Monroe Theatre tells the story of "star crossed lovers" from rival Hispanic families living in San Fernando, CA.


    This is not West Side Story. Romeo y Julieta touches on the, very real, inner-racial tension within the Hispanic community my students deal with daily.

    Human Trafficking - More Than A Survivor - D'Lita Miller

    in Motivation

    Living a sheltered, middle class life as an only child in the city of Compton, D’Lita had no idea how things would drastically change when she became a child victim of sexual exploitation. For 15 years, the hardships of being a single mom kept her in the life but she finally walked away, and checked into community college became a legal assistant, and her journey to success began.  D’Lita’s daughter became a victim of human trafficking, and it was then that she drew a line in the sand and refused to be merely reactive, but proactive. Determined to make sure this never happened again, she founded the organization FAST (Families Against Sex Trafficking) where she fills every role from Executive Director to Admin to Case Manager and Public Speaker. Ms. Miller has worked with agencies such as Saving Innocence, Runaway Girl, The Mary Magdalene Project, California Against Slavery, and several others.  


    D’Lita has personally assisted in helping over a hundred women to exit the life and has trained thousands of community members, law enforcement officers and youth. D’Lita has recently partnered with Gems Uncovered dba Forgotten Children Inc. to provide a 12-Week Diversion Program for women involved in sexual exploitation. Ms. Miller is featured on the new A&E show “8 Minutes”, which is a show focused on sexual exploitation.  D’Lita’s goal is to use her expertise, experience, and courage to help women who feel trapped to realize that they too can have a bright future, if they just take the first step.
