Opening Act’s theater programs provide students attending New York City’s most under-served public schools the opportunity to gain confidence, pride, and the knowledge that they can succeed at anything in life. Founded in 2000 by actors and educators, Opening Act gives high school students opportunities – through theater – to develop leadership, commitment, confidence, and community. Opening Act provides free after-school and extra-curricular programs to the most high-need NYC public high schools that have low graduation rates and a lack of theater and arts programs. We strive to remain a consistent and positive force in our students’ lives, regardless of fluctuating school budgets and priorities.
