March with Mr. Nearing & Keegan Theatre in the Capital Pride Parade

Hello Ellington,

PRIDE is almost here! That means that the Capital Pride Parade is coming too and will be happening on Saturday, June 11, 3:00 PM – 7:30 PM. With that, I have some really exciting news!

I serve on the Keegan Theatre Board of Directors and on behalf of the entire Keegan family, I would like to invite the entire Ellington community to march with me and Keegan Theatre in the parade! I will definitely be marching and would love to have you all with me. If you’ve never experienced marching in the PRIDE Parade, I hope you take advantage of this opportunity. It is INCREDIBLE!!!

Aside from serving on the BOD, I have also performed in a few Keegan productions. I promise you that the Keegan team is full of amazing people and something as simple as marching in a parade could be the beginning of a wonderful partnership with them. I am actually working on building a stronger partnership between Keegan and DESA which will hopefully result in real opportunities for students!

If you’re interested, please see me for more information. Students, if you plan to join, please be sure that your parent/guardian emails me a completed permission slip. You can find that form here. My email address is

This will be the perfect way to close out DESA’s Inaugural Pride Week (June 5 – June 11) so who is marching with me???!!!

Mr. Nearing
