Broadway For All

July 18, 2016

One of the wonderful cast members of Scheherazade, Osh Ghanimah, is part of the NYC-based organization Broadway For All, and the group brought some students to see the show on Sunday!

Broadway For All was established in 2012, and today the program is a not-for-profit that offers tuition-free, world-class conservatory training to middle and high school students from across the country. The organization was created to provide young artists the opportunity to practice and enhance their talents, regardless of their ethnic or economic backgrounds. Their tuition-free program offers participants the opportunity to fine-tune their skills in acting, writing, and music with Broadway professionals.

Their mission is “to transform the American stage and screen to reflect the diversity of America. We train young artists from all income levels and all ethnic backgrounds in a world-class conservatory—led by professionals from the Broadway, television, and film industries—in order to shape a new generation of artists, leaders, and advocates who are impassioned to create inclusive work FOR ALL.”

The students stayed for a talk-back after the performance on Sunday, and had some insightful and well-developed thoughts on the production. We are thrilled that programs like this exist that challenge young people to think critically about theatre!
