Help PS 2 Bring a Fairy Tale to Life!

PS 2 is an elementary school located in an economically disadvantaged section of Manhattan's Chinatown. Most of our students are recent immigrants and many are learning English. PS 2's fabulous drama teacher offers our students the amazing opportunity to participate in a full-scale musical theater production, which not only helps children to develop their English language skills, but also builds their self-esteem and self-expression. 

In 2013, with the help of WNET and the New York City Council, we were able to put on an incredible production of Annie. This year, we're looking forward to doing Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella! But we need your help. Donations to our musical will help pay for costumes, the set, and best of all, tickets to the current Broadway production of Cinderella (we've gotten discounted tickets -- $30/apiece -- but we need 45 tickets, so that's $1,350). This gives our students, who have never seen a Broadway show, the chance to go to a professional production of the show that they're performing themselves, as well as have the opportunity to meet the cast and crew!  

Please help us bring an amazing theatrical experience to our students who don't often have the opportunity to leave Chinatown. Any amount is greatly appreciated!
