Among those scheduled to take part in the 7 PM event are Tony winners Bill Irwin and Debbie Gravitte, Dominic Nolfi, Dominic Scaglione, Jr., Etai BenShlomo, Everett Bradley, Andrea Chamberlain, Jess LeProtto, Neil McCaffrey and Jake Schwenke as well as cast members from Memphis.
Broadway veterans and PS 166 parents Paula Leggett Chase and husband musical director David Chase have assembled the cast. Producer parents Jeff Martin and John Kroner are the organizing forces behind the event.
Funds raised will help compensate for state and NYC Department of Education cuts that have taken a toll on the school's theatre arts, music and enrichment programs.
PS 166, known as the Richard Rodgers School of Arts and Technology, is dedicated to "supporting and promoting theater arts in the school, particularly works by Richard Rodgers who attended the school, and is its namesake."
Tickets, priced $15 for children, $30 for adults and $75 for front-center rows, may be purchased online at http://www.ps166.org/www/03M166/site/hosting/Broadway.html.
