Hving been a part of the annual Rockers On Broadway® concert series, Amanda Swickle (Annie National Tour) was inspired to create an “all kids” Rockers-type event to support the arts community. She approached the The PATH Fund, Inc.® team who hopped on board thrilled at the opportunity to mentor and work with these amazing young artists from around the country.
“I wanted find a way to give back to the arts community and produce a night of great Rock & Roll music with talented and like minded kids. I love what The PATH Fund stands for, so they are the ideal choice for a beneficiary,” says Swickle.
The performers include:
Amanda Swickle (Annie National Tour); Sway Bhatia (The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, HBO’s Succession); Fallyn, Isabelle ‘Zabel’ Gottfried; Marquise Neal (Kinky Boots), Bella Retter; Matteo Russo; Myles Santiago; Sylvia Smith; and Anika, Amaya (Annie, The King & I), and Adriana (The King & I) Braganza.
The creative team is led by director Donnie Kehr; Executive Producers Amanda Swickle, Cori Gardner and Donnie Kehr; with music supervision by Henry Aronson.
“We are so honored that these young performers want to give their time and talent to our cause”, says Gardner. “Their commitment to the community is impressive and inspirational.” adds Kehr.
