Awesome content from Opening Act alums!

Hello Opening Act Community!

This time last year, when the majority of arts education programs were forced to shutter, we made a bold decision to create virtual stages and provide uninterrupted access to our programs  because… Opening Act always SHOWS UP! We’ve learned a great deal about how to effectively teach, learn, connect, and create virtually (hello mute button and cat filters!), but most importantly, we’ve seen how – even when faced with the intersecting crises of a global pandemic and racial injustice – Opening Act students and alums quickly adapted and continued to create remarkable work.



Check out some of our amazing alum created content on our youtube channel (, and follow @openingactny for upcoming student/alum-driven events and releases!


This year, Opening Act has employed 8 Alumni Act 2 Fellows with 100% placement at virtual internships, and 2 of our Fellows were offered paid positions with their placements!


Join us every Thursday at noon for Hi Noon Improv! (Register HERE!) Hosted by actor, comedian, and Opening Act Alum, Jeremiah Thompson, Hi Noon Improv is always free and always FUN!


Opening Act’s Virtual Gala is April 28th! Mark your calendar, and stay tuned for announcements about our star-studded cast coming soon!

Thank you for supporting Opening Act always, and especially through this most challenging year! We’re so grateful to have YOU in our Opening Act community!

Onwards and upwards!
