“Opening Act gave me a voice.”
Franky | Opening Act Student (Bronx)
Opening Act’s year-long theater programs at 36 public high schools culminated at YESfest, a FREE week-long festival of original work at New York Live Arts in May 2016. These student-created and performed plays took on topics ranging from slut shaming to police brutality, conflicted communities, the resiliency of women, and the supernatural – and were the absolute highlight of our year!
Special thanks goes out to our Adopt a School sponsors who make it all happen year after year. We are so very grateful.
