Opening Act Ensembles Prepare to Take the Stage!
On May 20-24, Opening Act's young actors will present their original, full length plays at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Every student deserves a place to shine. We provide the stage.
Opening Act's theater programs provide students attending New York City's most under-served schools the opportunity to gain confidence, pride, and the knowledge that they can succeed at anything in life. Currently serving 33 New York City high schools, our vision is to be able to offer a high quality theater program to any New York City school that needs one.
Although our medium is the theater, our results go well beyond the stage. Opening Act students emerge as energized leaders within their schools. They value community and commitment and display confidence in themselves and their ability to accomplish anything they set out to achieve. What we do.
