Foster Your Dream has made a theatre dream come true. December 2015-2016
FYD went to bat for one of our Dream Kids.
Thanks to our longtime friend, Colleen Hughes who is the Arts Administrator at our favorite Signature Theatre, we received a full gratis subscription for our teen client who is in college for theatre! Thanks for always helping us, Colleen!
We first met our client Nancy when she showed up at “Ann On Broadway” and met Holland Taylor in June of 2013.
That’s Nancy in the glasses and Jean jacket!
After losing track of her for nearly 2 years … (that happens a LOT with our clients due to “The System” ) … she showed up at our Dames At Sea Theatre Project Event and I pounced on her with such enthusiasm that she nearly took my temperature! 🙂 You see, Colleen had many tickets over the 2 years that were inappropriate for young patrons but totally appropriate for a young teen. It was breaking my heart that we couldn’t find Nancy due to such stringent privacy concerns (for good reasons) … so wow was I glad that she heard about our “Dames At Sea” event and showed up so I could pounce. 🙂
Shy client! Can you find her?
She stayed for the talk-back at the end and we got to talking. You can see her here in this very bad photo listening to a cast member answer her very smart question about how he gets in to each ‘character’ while playing two different characters. It was exciting that she was still in school studying acting and the arts. She said she would love a subscription to the theatre and we immediately called Colleen Hughes who pitched it to her superiors and made it all happen!
10th Avenue and 42nd Street!
Not only is the Signature Theatre doing amazing vibrant work, but they are a haven for visitors who just want to take a break, have a snack, be in a beautiful setting and enjoy free wifi!
Happy Young Theatre Patrons!
Nancy is able to take a friend to every performance so she can chat about the experience and feel as special as we KNOW she is!
