Generous supporter doubles your donation!

Dear Opening Act Community,

I can’t believe how generous folks are – right now – during this extraordinary time. We’re halfway to our $100k goal with 4 days remaining before YESfest!

An anonymous supporter is boldly showing up for the students of Opening Act with a $10k match grant. Give now, and your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar!

Despite these tough times, what we can report is that students are showing up online each week to connect, create, and rehearse. They are safe, they are seen, and they are heard. We even have NYC Department of Education teachers opting in for theater games and warm-up exercises with their students. As long-term artists and educators, we know that improv makes people feel more comfortable and tolerant of uncertainty. Opening Act has the talent and the know-how to face this situation. We need you as a partner to get the job done because #TheShowMustGoONLINE!

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION (Now until Friday, May 15th)

And please join our students and celebrate their #HighSchoolProud moment this Friday, May 15th at our 20th Annual YESfest Student Performances on Facebook LIVE!

With gratitude,

Cathleen Carr
Associate Director of Impact and Communications
