Dear Friends and Fans of Johnny Lee,
Thank you all for your role in Johnny’s life before his illness, your support and prayers during his illness, and your outpouring of incredible memories after his death.
If you want to continue to honor Johnny’s memory, we have established a nonprofit organization:
Beyond Classical Theatre honors the legacy of Johnny Lee Davenport by giving actors of color, with a specific passion for classical theatre, opportunities to prepare for excellence in the performance of classical theatre and to become role models and teachers for other actors of color who share this same passion. Beyond Classical Theatre offers grants, determined and developed annually by its board, to foster these opportunities.
We’re kicking this off with a fundraiser at www.gofundme.com/f/in-honor-of-johnny-lee-davenport
We have a goal of $15,000. Please contribute if you can.
We should have the website www.beyondclassicaltheatre.org up and running within a week or two.
Thank you for loving Johnny, as he loved all of you.
