The July 16 concert, directed by director-producer Richard Jay-Alexander, features young performers working alongside Broadway stars that include James Kinney (Sweet Charity), Tyler Hanes (A Chorus Line), Nikki Snelson (Legally Blonde), Sarah Pfeifer (Jersey Boys) and Paul Canaan (Legally Blonde).
Here, Darrington speaks to the students about being passionate about performing. The BDF program offers significant scholarships to hundreds of students each year, ensuring them to "realize their Broadway Dreams regardless of their financial status."
