The fourth annual benefit cabaret Little Theater, Big Dreams, featuring young Broadway stars performing with the West Side Y's Kids Company, will be held May 12 at 7 PM.
Performed at the the West Side YMCA's Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater, the evening will be hosted by Broadway's David Rossetti (Annie), who also serves as the benefit's creator, producer and director.
Scheduled performers also include Jessica Hendy (Cats); Brandon Rubendall (Anything Goes); and Sadie (Annie) and Mitchell Sink (Matilda The Musical), a Broadway brother-and-sister duo, singing "Anything You Can Do" with members of the Kids Company.
All proceeds will benefit the ongoing youth theatre programs supported by the Y's Strong Kids Campaign.
Each year the YMCA of Greater New York delivers more than $46 million in sponsored, free and subsidized programs to more than 400,000 members and program participants, assuring all of an equal chance to benefit from the YMCA's programs and services. Funds raised help offer new programs, sponsor more youth who are interested in the arts and ensure continued updates and repairs to our theatrical home.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
