What have the schools said?
"Let me begin by saying 'Thank you' for the opportunity you afforded our students at PS 84. This was an opportunity our students would not have otherwise had as the expense is too great for many of our families. The students enjoyed it very much. Programs such as this should continue as they open up doors for children like ours. I cannot say enough about this great opportunity we had with our students."

"Thank you so much for having the Halsey students attend The Fantasticks last week. The kids had SO much fun and were so excited to have the opportunity to meet some of the cast. It was a wonderful experience for them. Thanks again!"
Ms. Sara Shikowitz
Choral Director, J.H.S. 157
"The ongoing commitment of The Fantasticks to provide free and engaging theater experiences for NYC public school students is truly inspiring. This program opens new artistic and cultural doors for many of our students who will experience their first professional theatrical production. With the support it deserves, this program will make great strides in theater equity & accessibility for youth and sends a message that theater matters."
