"The situation seemed hopeless until one day; a small adorable innocent orphan boy went up to the two women right outside their castles..." 

That is the turning point in Jenn Palumbo's How Peanut Butter Met Jelly because that little boy teaches the Princess of Peanut Butter and the Duchess of Jelly that they can combine forces to make one awesome sandwich Thank you for being the forces that turned our 2012 Audience Project into a reality!

Thank you so much for supporting Arts For All's 2012 fall children's tour.  Thank you to those of you who were so kind to us on Bonus Day: we raised over $6,000 in less than twelve hours, and are now FULLY FUNDED!

After two and a half weeks of rehearsals, and a week of tech, the Audience Project shows are touring.  We are thrilled to be able to present How Peanut Butter Met Jelly and The Fairy Tale Academy to over 2,500 in-need students throughout New York City.  The actors, Mieko Gavia, Stephanie Holser, Miranda Kahn, and Timothy Regan are hard at work with director Lena Moy-Borgen, Production Manager Arienne Pelletier to reach all the schools.  We have already performed for 600 kids! with great success!
