The Young Storytellers Foundation is a charitable organization that aims to bridge the gap when arts programs are cut from public school budgets. In 1997, a group of young screenwriters realized that Los Angeles schools were cutting programs, and knowign the value of arts education from their own lives, they created the Young Storytellers Foundation to help develop literacy through the art of storytelling. And this weekend, The Biggest Show 2012 will take place, with performances from the cast of Glee.
The YSF serves students in public schools ages 11 to 18, with the majority of participants being fifth grade students. Their goal is to help kids graduate high school and go to college, to give students the opportunity to advance academically, and to have the opportunity to succeed and express themselves using their words instead of violence.
This year's The Biggest Show will include performances from Max Adler, Darren Criss, Dean Geyer, Kevin McHale, Dot Marie Jones, Naya Rivera, and Iqbal Theba. There will be other guests in attendance as well, including Trevor Donovan from 90210, Juliette Goglia from That's So Raven, and more. The event will take place on Saturday, October 20 at 6 p.m. at Willows Community School in Culver City, California.
Will you be there? We will. Stay tuned for interviews from all of your faves.
