“The best gift I have ever been given”

“A better day is on the way, but only you can change it!” As we closed the curtain on our annual production, 9 to 5: The Musical, the overarching themes of friendship, self-reliance and commitment to improving your surroundings, resonated deeply with the student performers and audiences alike.

This year, Muse Machine’s production included over 100 students from 47 schools and homeschools. On stage, backstage and in the orchestra pit, these students immersed themselves in the transformative experience of collaboratively creating a production.

Dolly Parton’s sage advice, “Find out who you are and do it on purpose,” encapsulates Muse’s wish for every student and teacher we meet. Through Muse, students and teachers leverage the arts to explore new knowledge, challenge themselves and contribute to a better world. Your gift creates the spaces where young minds discover themselves and forge connections with others through the power of the arts.

“Every time I walked into the Muse studio, I felt welcomed and loved.”

“You don’t just learn how to sing and act, but you learn how to tell a story — you learn the importance of the stories being told.”

“The experience has led me to become better at problem-solving, schoolwork and confidence when talking to new people.”

“Not only did Muse give me a voice and power to pursue what I love as an artist, but it also taught me how to be a contributing member of a community beyond myself.”

“This is the best gift I have ever been given. Thank you so much for letting me have space here.”
