"You have to admit that you're different, as well. Can we be different together and make music?" - Jai-Lyzz, age 11.
The premiere of a new program at The 52nd Street Project. We brought four young members together with adult volunteers and tasked them with creating a monologue for audio. The young people worked on the scripts, sound design, and editing. Some even perform themselves.
Also, our virtual gala is coming up. Hosted by Nancy Giles, starting May 3rd, we’ll release new music videos of songs with lyrics by Project members, composed and performed by adults. Visit www.52projectHiddenGemsGala.org

A production of The 52nd Street Project, a non-profit arts education organization working with children (ages 9 - 18) in Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. The Project brings kids together with adult artists to create original work for the theater. The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.
The 52nd Street Project is supported by The Altman Foundation, & The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
