The raffle, which is currently running, will conclude Feb. 10 with the winners announced on Feb. 15.
Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP), the new arts-based humanitarian organization founded by Broadway music director and orchestrator Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Sweeney Todd, Company), is currently raffling tickets to attend Roundabout Theatre Company's The Apple Tree as well as 30 minutes of backstage mingling with Chenoweth.
Entitled "4:30," the raffle offers four tickets from "Kristin's special reserved seats," plus a backstage tour, and a visit to the star's dressing room "for 30 minutes of 'hang out time'!"
Other raffle prizes include signed Playbills by the cast. The cost to enter the raffle is $10 with all proceeds benefiting ASTEP.
To enter, visit www.CreateSomethingGood.org. Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) "is a non-profit organization which mobilizes the global community of artists in an effort to create positive change for young people in need worldwide."
ASTEP currently hosts arts-based programming "in which teaching artists immerse themselves in poverty-stricken areas, and through the universal language of art they educate youth on issues ranging from self-empowerment and racism to AIDS awareness."
In recent months, ASTEP hosted a songwriter series with Broadway talent performing works by emerging composers and lyricists. The price of admission to those events was a jar of change.
The ASTEP board of directors is comprised of Mary-Mitchell Campbell (founder/chair), Michelle Miller (vice-chair), Mark Canavera (treasurer), Jessica Walling Stokes (secretary), Kristin Chenoweth, Gavin Creel, John Doyle, Raul Esparza, Deb Lapidus, Anne L. Nathan, Queen Nworisara-Quinn, Timothy Thomas, Pascal Van Kipnis and Susan Vargo. The executive director of ASTEP is Michael Rader.
