Get an exclusive first look at Tisch New Theatre's ONWARD, a concert to benefit Good Chance Theatre!

The evening will feature 11 New York University students, across multiple schools, performing songs ranging from musical theatre to pop and R&B. The concert will also premiere an original song written in honor of the event by student Kaila Wooten.

Good Chance Theatre is a UK-based non-profit that builds temporary theatres in areas where expression is stifled and where immigrant and local communities are struggling to integrate. They work to provide hope, and promote freedom of expression, creativity, and dignity for all.

ONWARD is entirely produced, directed, designed, and performed by NYU students. Casey Whyland, of Broadway's Billy Elliot and a senior in the Gallatin school, directs and choreographs. When asked about the rehearsal process so far, 3-time Broadway veteran and Gallatin senior Andy Richardson said, "Getting to be part of an experience like this is thrilling. It's a different environment than a normal show but the talent is so vivid." Through ONWARD, the students of Tisch New Theatre hope to not only support Good Chance Theatre with a donation from the ticket sale proceeds but also to raise awareness of the selfless and vital role they play in the lives of those in need. For Steinhardt senior Kuhoo Verma, the concert is a "celebration of our responsibility as human beings. We can and should and will take care of each other."

ONWARD will be performed on April 15th at 7:00 PM in the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium within NYU's Kimmel Center for Student Life, located at 60 Washington Square Park South. For tickets and additional information, visit NYUTischNewTheatre.com.
