IN THE COMMUNITY

 

An important part of the culture we are building at Blue Square is an environment of giving back.

We are proud and fortunate to be involved with and focusing our energies on local children’s non-profits. We are humbled by the amazing professionals who run these organizations and kids who participate in them.

Opening Act seeks to level the playing field for students attending New York City’s most under-served public high schools by offering students opportunities to develop leadership, community and commitment through its innovative, high-quality, free theater programming. Currently partnering with 51 schools in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx, Opening Act’s yearlong program teaches improvisation, acting technique and writing exercises and culminates in an original production created, written and performed by the students in a professional theater. In 2017-2018, Opening Act is expanding its work in District 79, NYC's alternative school district, as well as launching Act 2: Opening Act’s College and Career Readiness Program. More at openingact.org.
