Broadway Theatre League continues student outreach program

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- The Broadway Theatre League at the Von Braun Center has a student outreach program that serves more than ten thousand children per year.

The students do workshops, art projects, and watch live performances-- and all of it is absolutely free to the schools and the students.

"We try to pick subjects that they're going to be learning in the classroom so we're connecting to the curriculum, but then also expanding their minds," explained Andrew Willmon, executive director of Broadway Theatre League. "A lot of the kids who come are pre-k through 4th grade, so it's a whole new world for them, and it's their first exposure to live theatre performance."

Today's performance, "Dinosaur Zoo Live," is a giant puppet show that upholds the non-profit's mission to entertain and educate.
