On December 13, over 2,000 public school students from New York City will get an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes of The Band's Visit through Inside Broadway's Creating the Magic program. The nonprofit has partnered with the Tony-winning production to offer students from across the boroughs the chance to experience the inner workings at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
Students will learn about career options in the industry and get exposure to various facets of production design. They will also see musical performances by the cast and participate in a Q&A.
The Creating the Magic program has partnered with other Broadway shows previously, including The Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Finding Neverland, Chicago, Mamma, Mia! and Wicked.
“It’s a great honor to present this acclaimed and important new Broadway production in our Creating the Magic series," said Inside Broadway Executive Director Michael Pressner in a statement.
The Band's Visit won ten Tony Awards earlier this year, including Best Musical, Best Score for David Yazbek, Best Book for Itamar Moses, Best Direction of a Musical for David Cromer, and wins for three of its stars: Katrina Lenk, Ari'el Stachel, and Tony Shalhoub
