Opening Act is back to school, AND…

…we’re celebrating 20 years of innovative, impactful theater programming with the amazing young people of NYC!

Witness this short clip from our 2019 Summer Arts & Leadership Conservatory to see how powerful theater can be in the lives of young people…

After an awe-inspiring summer with these young artists, new and returning students join teaching artists across 56 schools this week for the start of fall programming.

 AND we are…

   Piloting our first middle school program!

   Opening our first high school program in Queens!

   Expanding to 4 more District 79 sites!

   Continuing to support our students and alumni in their second act in life through our Act 2 College and Career Program!

Knowing what we’ve accomplished together over the past 20 years, imagine what we can do in #20more!
