Bring a Group of Youth to a Show
The Possibility Project offers reduced-price or complimentary tickets to agencies, schools and youth organizations in New York City. Our newest original musical, Versus will premiere soon!

ABOUT THE SHOW
Show Description: How far would you go to achieve your dreams, and what would you do if the odds were stacked against you? Giovanni and Saphire are best friends trying to break in to the hip-hop industry. With big dreams of stardom, they strive to bring their music to the next level by listening to their audience – the young people in their neighborhood. Using their fans’ lives as inspiration for their latest material, they examine the struggles – poverty, neglect, discrimination, loss – that youth in New York City face every day. What they witness not only threatens their musical ambitions but also their friendship. Can these two friends have it all without leaving one another behind? And if so, what does that mean for everyone else in their neighborhood?
Versus is an original musical drama written and performed by a diverse group of NYC teenagers. The stories in the show are based on the real-life experiences of the cast and their ideas for change about the most serious issues they face as young people.
