Dear Evan Hansen Announces Second Season of ArtsConnection Partnership
The musical will bring students to the Music Box Theatre.
Producer Stacey Mindich has announced that Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen will kick off its second season of partnering with the New York-based ArtsConnection, to bring public high school students to see the production at the Music Box Theatre.
Art2Art - Dear Evan Hansen will be funded by producer Carole Shorenstein Hays, owner of San Francisco's Curran theatre. The program allows students to participate in workshops with cast and creative team members and will culminate with students creating an original work of visual art that responds to the show. The works will be curated in an online gallery and displayed at the Music Box.
Students throughout New York City are eligible to apply for participating. The program will be offered four times during the 2018-19 season.
Students throughout New York City are eligible to apply to participate in ART2ART. From its applicant pool, 50 students will be chosen for each session. This program will be offered four times during the 2018-19 season, and the resulting artwork will be preserved as part of a growing online gallery.
With a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a Tony-winning book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: "A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in."
