Over 2,000 NYC Students To Go Behind the Scenes At KING KONG On Broadway

On Thursday, March 28 leading NYC arts education nonprofit Inside Broadway and the groundbreaking Broadway production of King Kong will present a special Creating the Magic program offering an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway featuring the King Kong cast & production crew.

These exclusive 70-minute programs will be offered to over 2,000 NYC public school students from Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens & Manhattan at the Broadway Theatre (1681 Broadway) on 3/28 at 11:00am and 2pm. Since 1982, Inside Broadway has impacted the lives of over 1 million New York City public school students with its one-of-a-kind theatre arts and education programs that enrich, educate and foster new generations of theatergoers.

Providing a truly unique theatrical experience on 3/28, Inside Broadway's Creating the Magic program will be presented to thousands of New York City public school students who will get a special behind-the-scenes look at the inner world of Broadway and learn about career opportunities in the theater. From exciting set, lighting, sound & prop demonstrations, musical performances from the cast and a Q&A session, attendees will have an exclusive look at how a Broadway show runs and operates.

"It's a great honor to present this exciting & exhilarating new Broadway production in our Creating the Magic series" says Inside Broadway's Executive Director Michael Presser.

The epic modern myth comes alive on Broadway through an innovative mix of animatronics, puppetry, music and stagecraft! Roaring with heart-pounding action, King Kong is a gripping and spectacular story of unlikely friendship, unshakable courage, and breaking free from the cages others put us in. Directed and choreographed by Olivier winner Drew McOnie, King Kong features an electrifying new score by Marius de Vries (La La Land) and Eddie Perfect (Beetlejuice The Musical), and a book by Jack Thorne, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning writer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Inside Broadway, established by Michael Presser in 1982 in cooperation with The Shubert Organization, today reaches over 70,000 New York City students in over 100 public schools each year. Their programs include an annual Equity musical production that tours to schools as well as a wide range of educational programs that allow participants to interact with professionals in the field and experience theatre hands-on in the classroom.
