The award-winning and critically acclaimed New York City Children's Theater (NYCCT) will present Kaleidoscope - a short film to celebrate their 24th year. The event will also build awareness and amplify their mission that promotes children's literacy and social development through professional theater productions and arts-in-education programs.

Premiering Saturday, April 24 at 8:00 PM (EST), Kaleidoscope, hosted by the awesome Michael Urie (Buyer and Cellar; Ugly Betty), will include special performances and appearances by:

Anika Larsen (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and Freddie Maxwell performing a song from her album of lullabies for all ages.

Alan Cumming introducing a sneak peek of The Adventures of Honey and Leon, a new musical from NYCCT, adapted from his book, with a musical performance by Min Kahng and Annie Clark.

A filmed performance from NYCCT's award-winning production A BAND OF ANGELS starring Bryson Bruce, Denielle Marie Gray, Sekou S. Luke, Cynthia Nesbit, Sam Ray, La'Nette Wallace and directed by Colman Domingo.

Kaleidoscope celebrates 24 years of bringing together artists and children to explore the power of creativity and imagination and offer gratitude to the NYC schools and families who have helped NYCCT grow. Funds raised will help NYCCT bring our award-winning theater productions and education programs to children and families across the city, at little or no cost to them. Donors will have the opportunity to participate in our virtual raffle with prizes from Laurie Berkner, The Dynamite Shop, and of course, NYCCT!

Kathleen Chalfant will also make a special appearance to congratulate NYCCT Artistic Director and Co-Founder Barbara Zinn Krieger on her Off-Broadway Alliance Legend of Off Broadway Award! Directed by Sammy Lopez (NYCCT's Same, Same, But Different).
