Gloria Manning Joins “Youth from the Broadway Community” Lineup; Current and Former WAITRESS Kids Added to (YOUNG); and more!

We were disappointed to hear about Lara Spencer’s disparaging remarks toward boys who dance on “Good Morning America” today. #BoysDanceToo, and we are proud to count so many incredible young dancers among the ranks of our alumni and currently featured kids, not to mention all the boys out there aspiring to Broadway dreams! We support all of you and hope you continue to follow those dreams.

Gloria Manning (Tina, The Lion King) has been added to the “Youth from the Broadway Community” concert, happening tomorrow!

Alumni London Skye Gilliam (Waitress) and Katie Grober (Waitress) and current Broadway kid Delaney Quinn (Waitress) have all been added to the lineup for the next (YOUNG) concert, happening August 25th at The Green Room 42! Get tickets HERE.
