ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) will host its inaugural gala, ASTEP & Friends, on Monday, April 23, at 54 Below. Tony Award winner Andrea Martin will host the event, which honors the activism of composer and lyricist Georgia Stitt, as well as ASTEP's work with CASES, the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services.

The intimate evening is conceived and directed by Mary-Mitchell Campbell, who founded the organization 11 years ago and currently serves as the musical director for Broadway's Mean Girls. The concert will feature performances by Mean Girls stars Erika Henningsen and Grey Henson, as well as Tony nominees Kate Baldwin and Laura Osnes, Jessica Vosk, and Sean Green Jr., with more to be announced.

ASTEP was conceived by Campbell and Juilliard students to transform the lives of youth using the most powerful tool they had — their art. With programs as local as New York City and as global as India and South Africa, ASTEP Volunteer Artists teach in schools and community organizations, serving youth affected by refugee status, homelessness, gun violence, the justice system, HIV/AIDS, and systemic poverty.
