Students at seven Queens schools will have the opportunity to embark upon a unique creative journey over the course of the next few months.

Inside Broadway, an arts education nonprofit, will bring after-school theater programs to schools throughout Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. The program will reach approximately 75,000 students with interactive arts programming.

The following Queens schools will begin the program this fall: P.S. 224, Glen Oaks; P.S. 69 and P.S. 222, Jackson Heights; P.S. 7 and P.S. 13, Elmhurst; P.S. 113, Glendale; and P.S. 162, Flushing.

Students will meet twice a week for 25 sessions to rehearse and collaborate with their peers, professional artists and designers on “NYC Musical Mystery Melodies,” a performance that will allow the viewer to take a journey through the city to the tune of Broadway standards.

Programs will run into early 2018 and culminate with a final performance.

The program is funded by the New York City Council and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs under the Council’s Cultural After-School Adventures (CASA) initiative.
