Later this month on Thursday, January 24, Broadway's Palace Theatre will be visited by thousands of NYC public school students as the Great White Way's leading arts education not-for-profit Inside Broadway partners with the Broadway revival of Annie to offer two exclusive 'Creating the Magic' events. Taking place at 10:45am and 1:15pm, the programs are being presented for free to over 2,500 New York City public school students as they get a behind the scenes look at the magical world of Broadway and learn about all the career opportunities in the theater.
On January 24, these thrilling, interactive and completely free 'Creating the Magic' programs will fill the Palace Theatre with over 2,500 New York City public school students that participate in Inside Broadway's programs (this will be many of the students' first time visiting a Broadway theatre). Attendees will get a special behind the scenes look at the world of Broadway with members of the Annie cast and crew (lighting, sound, stage management and orchestra) all taking part. From exciting set, lighting and sound demonstrations to musical performances from the cast and a Q&A session, it is sure to provide an unforgettable experience.
