Lets Get Intimate With Rosie O’Donnell, Funny Girl and a Little Bit of Singing At The Rosies’s Theatre Kids Gala

Lets Get Intimate With Rosie O’Donnell, Funny Girl and a Little Bit of Singing At The Rosies’s Theatre Kids Gala

Rosies’s Theatre Kids celebrates its 15th anniversary on October 22 at the Marriott Marquis Ballroom (1535 Broadway) in a magical night of talent. Hosted by Rosie O’Donnell the benefit raised over $200,000.00 in less than 15 minutes. Generous donors gave generously at $10,000, $5000.00 and $1,000.00 with the only gift of tee shirts for the table.

T2C talked to the star and got first hand information about her hopes for this organization, her love for musical theatre, Funny Girl and more.

RTKids was launched in 2003 at PS 51, a Title I public school bordering on the theater district where students would walk by Broadway theaters daily, and never have the opportunity to go inside. Rosie noticed this, and thought it was, “…like living in Hawaii, and never having access to the beach.” Together with Rosie, Artistic and Executive Director Lori Klinger developed PS Broadway – RTKids foundational program. In 2003, all 40 fifth graders at PS 51 participated in 15 weeks of singing and dancing training, and every single fifth grader went to see their first Broadway show – all free of charge.

Over the years since its debut, RTKids has blossomed into much more than simply a song and dance venue. The dedication and inspiration of its expert staff and generosity of its guest Broadway professionals have yielded truly remarkable results. Today, RTKids services include performing arts instruction, life skills development, academic tutoring, and a home-away-from-home environment that is safe and nurturing.

The gala featured performance by Rosie’s Theater Kids and honored Tony and Grammy Award-winning actor, singer, director, composer, and playwright, Billy Porter.
