The After-School program began in 2007. It takes place each year in the important after-school hours when young people need opportunities to engage in social/emotional learning (SEL) that balances and builds on their academic activities at school. The program engages 40-50 teenagers from all five boroughs of New York City who meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. Any teenager (13-19 years old) is welcome to audition.
Auditions for the After-School program take place in September each year.
Rehearsals begin in the first week of October and continue through the end of May of the following year.
