Photo Coverage: Chazz Palminteri with Fidelity Futurestage Students

 

On Wednesday, February 13, Academy Award nominated actor Chazz Palminteri (Usual Suspects, A Bronx Tale) welcomed 100 Fidelity Futurestage students from the Bronx (Stevenson High School, School for Community Research and Learning & Millennium Art Academy) to a performance of A Bronx Tale, which he wrote and is currently starring in, and a post-show talk back at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street, between Broadway & 8th Ave)

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. 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 May, 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
