Gibson Sotheby's International Realty participated as sponsors of the night out to the October 24th performance
Gibson Sotheby's International Realty recently had the remarkable opportunity to help The Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids programbuy outthe Boston Opera House, sending more than 2,000 Greater Boston area youth to the performance of Hamilton.This was the only buyout to date of the performances entire national tour.
The Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids endeavorsto broaden the horizons of at-risk youth and foster a lifelong appreciation of performing arts by exposing kids to live, professional theatre.
"Theatre for Kids distributes tickets to at-risk kids through a trusted pool of youth organizations, as well as public and private schools," Joyce Kulhawik, Honorary Chairwoman of the program, has stated."Each group receives an agreed upon number of tickets to bring kids they serve who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend a show. In addition to kids who do not have the economic means to attend, tickets are shared with kids with cognitive and behavioral challenges that make it difficult for them to attend a show with a 'typical' audience. Marilyn believed every kid should have access to musical theatre."
After the performance, several hundred of the youth remainedin the theatre for aspecialQ&A session with six members of the cast!
Since the programs inception in 2001, over 70,000 youthhave experienced live productions, including TheWizard of Oz, Annie, Wicked, and The Lion King.
