In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift in education across the country, Tony Award nominee and Executive Producer Hailey Kilgore presents PROJECT SING OUT!, a one-night-only livestreamed event to raise funds for the Educational Theatre Foundation (ETF) to support arts education, specifically in low-income communities and communities of color.
The livestreamed event will take place on Monday, July 20at 7pm (EST) in partnership with Playbill.com and can be viewed exclusively on Playbill.com’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page.
Our mission is to universally keep the arts alive by igniting creativity and inclusivity while paying homage to our educators, empowering young artists, and honoring the Broadway community. We are dedicated to making sure arts programming is available in communities large and small.
School theatre programs use box office proceeds to fund their next year's shows. With schools closed and spring shows canceled, many theatre programs are at risk of failing. Plus, with the massive cuts anticipated in state education budgets, arts and theatre programs will be at even greater risk. Thespian Relief Fund grants to help save school theatre will be awarded to schools in most need, including Title 1 schools with significant student enrollments of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
$500 grants for schools to start or renew a Thespian Troupe and cover lifetime fees for ten students.
$1000 grants to assist school theatre programs that have been negatively impacted by cancellation of events or loss of projected revenue.
