Boys and Girls Club kids treated to a day at the theater.
On Thursday, December 26, 2013, 27 young members of Monrovia's Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills attended the Pasadena Playhouse presentation of the Lythgoe Family Productions' Aladdin and His Winter Wish. Tickets were sponsored by Pasadena Playhouse Board Member and BGCF supporter Darrell Brooke.
"As chair of the Development, Outreach and Education Committee of the Pasadena Playhouse," Brooke said, "I have been looking at ways in which to connect the children of our community to professional theater.... The results were magical! The children were captivated throughout the show, and they had the opportunity to meet the young stars of the play on stage and in person following the show. It was such a success that I am planning another outing for the Boys and Girls Club of the Foothills next year. Those children are the future of live theater in the San Gabriel Valley."
