Next week, a lucky group of Los Angeles-area students will get to see their own plays brought to life by some of their favorite television stars: the cast of "Glee."
The exciting occasion is the Young Storytellers Foundation’s The Biggest Show 2012, taking place Oct. 20 at Willows Community School in Culver City, Calif. The evening will feature TV actors—most notably, cast members of "Glee"—performing a series of scripts written by students in YSF’s mentorship program.
The YSF, founded in 2003, aims to combat the cutting of L.A. public schools’ creative arts programs by sending in volunteers to mentor students in the art of playwriting. The YSF mentors approximately 700 students in the greater L.A. area each year. The annual Biggest Show is designed to showcase students’ work, to emphasize the importance of creative arts programs, and to raise funds for the YSF.
The "Glee" cast members taking the stage next week are Max Adler, Darren Criss, Dean Geyer, Kevin McHale, Dot Marie Jones, Naya Rivera, and Iqbal Theba. The Glee-ers will also be joined by Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Chelsea Kane, and Derek Theler of “Baby Daddy,” Trevor Donovan of “90210,” Juliette Goglia of “That’s So Raven,” and Brandon Mychal Smith of “Sonny with a Chance.”
