Recipient of eight Tony Award nominations including BEST MUSICAL, the critically-acclaimed new musical KIMBERLY AKIMBO will launch the Great Adventure Grants, a unique initiative that will fund three local high school musical theater productions next year, helping defraylicensing, production, and other costs associated with each school’s upcoming musical.

The initial recipients of this year’s grants are the Denzel Washington School of the Arts in Mount Vernon, NY; the High Tech High School in Secaucus, NJ; and the Pan American International High School in Queens, NY. Each school will receive a grant of $10,000. The Great Adventure Grants, which are being established as an annual initiative, seek to support student theater artists as they embark on the Great Adventure of musical theater.
