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.

The premiere performance takes place in April, and Community Action projects take place in May.
