TAKE A ROSIE BREAK
Chesney Snow, James Monroe Iglehart,
Jessie Mueller, Teal Wicks, BD Wong, and more!
Remote learning, working from home, and video conferencing are all becoming a part of our daily routine. The screens that connect us to our social networks also can reconnect us to our inner wellspring of creativity. Rosie's Theater Kids (RTKids) is here to help us all take a break - a Rosie Break - from our online class or work task and ignite the imagination that makes all learning possible.
Watch for your favorite theater luminaries to light up your screen with "Take a Rosie Break!" videos shared by Chesney Snow, ames Monroe Iglehart, Jessie Mueller, Teal Wicks, BD Wong, and more as they challenge you to get off the couch, get creative, and "Take a Rosie Break!" Each "Rosie Break" is a video challenge hosted by an artist, celeb, or friend of RTKids who's got an exciting or unique skill to share with you. And when you're done, you can join a community who have shared their results and creations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube #TakeARosieBreak #RosiesTheaterKids #RTKids.
The first four "Take A Rosie Break!" challenges are available now:

RTKids was launched in 2003 at PS 51, a Title I public school bordering on the theater district where students would walk by Broadway theaters daily and never have the opportunity to go inside. Founder Rosie O'Donnell noticed this, and thought it was, "…like living in Hawaii, and never having access to the beach." Together with Rosie, Artistic and Executive Director Lori Klinger developed PS Broadway - RTKids foundational program. In 2003, all 40 fifth graders at PS 51 participated in 15 weeks of singing and dancing training, and every single fifth grader went to see their first Broadway show - all free of charge.
Over the years since its debut, RTKids has blossomed into much more than simply a song and dance venue. The dedication and inspiration of its expert staff and generosity of its guest Broadway professionals have yielded truly remarkable results including 100% high school graduation and college placement rates. Today, RTKids' services have expanded to include ACTE II (A Commitment to Excellence), which includes performing arts instruction, life skills development, academic tutoring, college scholarship funding, and college and financial aid guidance and support at Maravel Arts Center, RTKids home just west of the theater district.
