A statement from Skylight in support of social justice

CANCELLED-KidsWrites 2020 (FREE PUBLIC PERFORMANCE)

March 16, 2020 | Cabot Theatre

This project is generously sponsored by:
City of Milwaukee Arts Board logo

KidsWrites is supported in part by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsins Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin

The KidsWrites Touring Show is an educational performance that transforms unedited, (MPS) 4th-7th grade student writing into a musical revue. Students wrote their pieces during a three-day workshop led by Skylight’s own talented teaching artists. Out of over 2,500 submissions, 36 were selected to create this year’s KidsWrites: Me, Myself, & I!

Five Skylight performers bring students’ writing to life through creative storytelling, dance, and vocals. Students wrote their pieces during a three-day workshop led by Skylight’s talented teaching artists. Out of over 2,500 submissions, 36 were selected to create this year’s KidsWrites. With some of the pieces, Skylight pairs students’ writing with professional composers to create musical numbers.

We are pleased to offer this FREE performance of the show in the Cabot Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center on Monday, March 16th at 7:00pm. Please note that while the performance is free, RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED!

There will be an opportunity for attendees to donate cash or check to Skylight’s Education programming which serves over 14,000 Milwaukee Public School Children annually!
