Jape and JapeScape Productions, would like to thank you for your support and generosity during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

While things are getting better we are all working hard to get back to normal.  JapeScape has announced our After School Drama Programs, and we are looking forward to getting started. 

Recently some of the parents that have enjoyed the videos over the pandemic, and enrolled their children in our programs have asked how they can show their support and generosity to JapeScape Productions and our staff.  As a result I have restored the donations button below.  As always and again thank you for your support.
