Local Teens and Broadway Stars to Perform For Covenant House
on Monday, April 3rd
Rumson – The third annual Night of FUTURE Broadway Stars, an exciting musical event benefitting homeless youth served by Covenant House in Asbury Park, will rock the auditorium at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School on Monday, April 3rd at 7 p.m.
Night of FUTURE Broadway Stars will feature outstanding performers from high schools throughout Monmouth County as well as Broadway stars. Also appearing will be talented young students from Forrestdale School and members of the RFH Dance Team. All proceeds will benefit the programs and services provided to homeless youth by Covenant House in Asbury Park which serves Asbury Park, Long Branch, Keansburg, and other shore towns.
“Night of FUTURE Broadway Stars at RFH helps continue the inspiring tradition of musical theater excellence in Monmouth County,” said Bill Grillo, RFH Music Director. “The way Covenant House brings people together for such an important cause really moves me, and I am excited to continue helping on the production end. I have no doubt this year’s student performers will exceed the audience’s expectations and ignite a crowd for the purpose of giving back.”
In this unique “kids helping kids” experience, teens will once again use their talent, passion, and beautiful voices to show homeless youth in New Jersey that they are not alone. Last year’s event featured over 60 students from seven high schools as well as members of two performing arts companies along with four Broadway stars. They delivered rousing performances to an audience of almost 500 and raised $33,000 for this very worthy cause.
Profits from this year’s event are earmarked for Covenant House in Asbury Park’s planned housing facility. Called “Rights of Passage,” it will offer housing in Asbury Park for men aged 18 through 21 as they work to transition out of homelessness. Covenant House in Asbury Park also offers GED tutoring, life skills and employment readiness training, and job search assistance to homeless youth. A community garden is also planned.
Covenant House is the largest privately funded agency in New Jersey providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and an array of other important services to homeless youth. “Each of our homeless kids comes to us with their own story, and we don’t turn any away,” said Sue Monteiro, Development Manager for Covenant House in Asbury Park.
Tickets for Night of FUTURE Broadway Stars can be purchased at the door or on-line at CHNJ.Book.Tix.Com
Tickets are $22 for general admission, and $15 for students and seniors.
