WASHINGTON, D.C. – The SYTA Youth Foundation (SYF) and Disney Theatrical Group hosted 87 New York City students from P.S.51 Bronx New School for an exciting day on Broadway through the SYF Broadway Bound 2018 program.
The students experienced The Lion King, Broadway’s award-winning “Best Musical,” on March 7, 2018. Disney Theatrical Group donated the tickets and gave the students access to TDF Stage Doors, a project-based arts education program that provides students with a meaningful introduction to live theater.
“For some of our students, this will be their first Broadway show,” said Dr. Min Hong, Principal of P.S.51 Bronx New School. “Perhaps for some school communities, receiving an opportunity to ride a coach bus, eat at the Hard Rock Cafe, and watch a Broadway show may be a kind gesture—but for our children, this is a life-changing event in their lives.”
Special thanks to Disney Theatrical Group for hosting; Hard Rock Cafe for providing lunch; Academy Bus, LLC, for transporting the students; and CCIS, Inc. for serving as the official tour operator for the program.
