“Hailey Kilgore [Once on This Island and Executive Producer for Project Sing Out!] reached out to Yael [Silver] and me to produce and help create Project Sing Out!. In partnership with Playbill and The Educational Theatre Foundation, our mission is to universally keep the arts alive in low-income and BIPOC communities by igniting creativity and inclusivity while paying homage to our educators, empowering young artists, and honoring the Broadway community,” shares Thomas. “We are dedicated to making sure arts programming is available in communities large and small, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Like many industries, the global pandemic has hit the performing arts and non-profit communities hard, causing shows and events to be canceled. “Many galas or benefits will not happen this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is critical for the funding of nonprofits and organizations. With Project Sing Out!, we have figured out a way to do it successfully and fast.”

Project Sing Out! is not only a star-studded event to entertain audiences and raise funds, but aims to encourage the next generation of designers, directors, stage managers, choreographers and artists. “This is the future of Broadway coming at you live and in the comfort of your own home. These kids are amazing! The cause is extraordinary and timely. Please tune in to Project Sing Out!,” says Thomas.

New York Film Academy would like to thank NYFA alumni Chase Thomas and Yael Silver for their hard work on putting together a noteworthy cause like Project Sing Out! and encourages everyone to tune in on Playbill’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Monday, July 20 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
