Broadway League To Hold Teacher’s Night

Thursday night the Broadway League helps some of New York city’s teachers and students experience the thrill of “Chicago” the Broadway play.  At Teacher’s Night on Broadway, five hundred New York educators got to see the arts live in action. The event is designed to show appreciation for public school educators’ efforts on behalf of Broadway Bridges. Also, Broadway Bridges aims to expose every NYC public school student to a Broadway show before graduation. Then, students can say they had an opportunity to experience the arts and theater. The support for Broadway Bridges comes from the UTF, the NYC Department of Education, and many others. The goal is to nurture not only the next generation of theater-goers but also future performing arts professionals. The program saw participation from 23,547 students and chaperones, and more than 80,000 students have benefited from the program since its inception.

Press Conference

Before the performance, a press conference took place in Times Square, with all the educators as guest speakers to talk about the importance of the arts in education. This gives students an introduction to Broadway. Bebe Neuwirth, a two-time tony winner, plays the role of Velma Kelly in the tony winning revival of “Chicago” alongside Roxie Hart. Also, Matron “Mama” Morton, helps welcome the five hundred New York City educators at the Ambassador Theatre. As a part of the Teacher’s Night experience.

Shows for Spring

To celebrate all those who help NYC public school students to succeed including school social workers, guidance counselors, librarians, and school nurses.

Those who would like to show support for exposing students to the arts and theater can also donate online. This year Broadway League is boasting about the 21 shows available for a showing. Some shows are “Aladdin,” “A Beautiful Noise,” “Bad Cinderella,” “Bob Fosse’s Dancin’,” “Camelot,” “Chicago,” and “Hadestown.”
