A few of our teachers work with the Theatre Development Fund Stage Doors Project. TDF’s Stage Doors is a project-based arts education program that provides middle and high school students with a meaningful introduction to live theatre. Each participating class attends a Broadway or Off Broadway performance and participates in eight in-class workshops: four workshops conducted by a professional teaching artist and four conducted by the classroom teacher. The workshops actively engage students in inquiry, creativity and community.

This past November half the school had the opportunity to see Kinky Boots on Broadway.

The Cast of KINKY BOOTS has been blowing up Social Media about the Matinee


Hernando Umana-Angel-Said it felt like a Beyoncé Concert with a full house of students. (Also gave interview for our Stage Doors campaign)

Hernando Umana: “High school kids from the Bronx were cheering for drag queens and were so receptive to the message. There's no way this would've happened when I was in high school. I've always been proud to be part of this show but what happened today is something I'll never ever forget.”


A Stage Door Student: Got her entire program signed by actors!



Andy Kelso-Charlie-said “Thank you for making us feel like THE BEATLES.”
