Broadway Stars Shining Bright to Benefit Amigos de Jesús at Broadway Sings

Tony-award winning performances to be held at The Episcopal Academy this fall.

 

Malvern, PA — Five of Broadway’s brightest stars will take the stage on October 1, 2016 to perform songs at a benefit event Amigos de Jesús, a home and bilingual school for children in Honduras.

Broadway Sings will feature Larua Osnes (Cinderalla), Caissie Levy (Les Miserables), Josh Young (Jesus Christ Superstar), Tamyra Gray (Rent), and Telly Leung (Glee). The evening, directed by Laura Pietropinto with Music Direction by Greg Kenna, will feature pop/rock favorites and hit Broadway showtunes from a variety of Tony Award-winning shows including WickedLes Miserables, South Pacific, Rent, and Aladdin.

The evening will kick off with a cocktail reception at the Crawford Campus Center at The Episcopal Academy at 6:00 pm. Performances will begin in the state-of-the-art Mainstage Theater at 7:30 pm.

A special highlight of the event will be the introduction of five children visiting from the home in Honduras. The three boys and two girls will mingle with guests during the cocktail reception and also participate in a special performance with several of the Broadway stars. The founding priest of Amigos de Jesús, Fr. Dennis O’Donnell, looks forward to the children’s visit every year. “This is one of the many wonderful ways our supporters can meet children of Amigos de Jesús while enjoying an amazing event.”

Sponsorship and tickets are now available now through the Amigos de Jesús website - http://www.amigosdejesus.org/broadwaysings. For questions or more information, call (610) 644-8237.
