“The Best Things in Life are Free”
Rosie’s Theater Kids collaborates with the New York City Department of Education to provide three types of services to schools: the PS Broadway initiative, the ACTE II (A Commitment To Excellence) after-school program, and Spotlight on Fitness.
Kids benefit from the dedication of professional teaching artists.
