Red Bank Kids on Broadway

Kids on Broadway! is an exciting theatrical and musical experience for any student at Red Bank Primary School in Grades 2 or 3. Funded through Count Basie Theatre's Education Outreach Program, Kids on Broadway seeks to enrich students' lives with artful and meaningful performance opportunities. 
This year's theme, GIFTS, stresses the important, but simple in gifts in life, such as friendship and love. Other gifts explored were belief and hope. Students perform classic songs such as "Friendship" from the musical Anything Goes, "Put on a Happy Face" from Bye, Bye Birdie, "I Believe" and "When You're Smilin'" to name a few.
Kids on Broadway cast members also performed for our Senior community members and traveled to the Atrium at Navesink Harbor and the Red Bank Senior Center. Students were warmly received by the audience and look forward to more performances in the future!
The cast of over thirty students is under the supervision of Mrs. Carol Boehm, PS Music Teacher and Ms. Joan Kilcommons, Count Basie Teaching Artist.
