Photo Coverage: FutureStage Students @ 'Frakenstein'

‚Äč

On Wednesday March 12, 2008 Roger Bart and the cast of Young Frankenstein welcomed 75 Fidelity FutureStage students from Long Island City High School (in Queens) to a performance of the hit musical Young Frankenstein and to a post-show talk back immediately following the matinee performance, which the students saw for free.†

Fidelity Futurestage is a comprehensive arts education initiative designed to bring professional theater into the classrooms of participating New York City schools created by Fidelity Investments, Leap (Learning Through An Expanded Arts Program) and The Viertel/ Frankel/ Baruch/ Routh Group.† Now in its second year, the program provides a unique playwriting and production curriculum for more than 800 area students, representing 10 underserved inner-city schools. Fidelity FutureStage affords students the extraordinary opportunity to learn from some of the Broadway community's leading playwrights, directors, designers and actors - both in their classrooms and at Broadway theatres - and ultimately experience the thrill of bringing their own creativity to life on a professional stage.†† In June, one play from each participating school will be selected for the Fidelity FutureStage landmark finale event, marking an unprecedented New York theatrical debut for every student involved.
