The Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative - 2021
P.S. 345 Patrolman Robert Bolden (Brooklyn, New York) – for $6,685 to create and establish a school theatre program. This program will combine drama and music to ultimately showcase a culminating production, highlighting the very talented students within the school’s community. The program will serve students in grades 3-5 and also the community at large by instilling a love of theater that extends far beyond the school’s doors. P.S. 345 is a Title 1 school that serves an ethnically and culturally diverse community. Students in the community face many challenges and have not been given the opportunity to participate in any type of theatre program due to citywide budget cuts that have greatly affected arts programming.
