Rosie’s Theater Kids (RTKids), founded in 2003, is an arts education organization started by Rosie O’Donnell that aims to better the lives of children through the arts. They provide comprehensive classes in music, dance and drama, in addition to providing mentorship and academic guidance. Through the RTKids program they inspire excellence, build confidence and a lifelong appreciation for the arts. Rosie’s Theater Kids programs prepare children to be actors, dancers or singers through a range of in-school programs and programs at Maravel Arts Center.
The foundation of the RTKids program, PS Broadway is an in-school program designed to introduce students to musical theater. Every fifth grade class at participating schools receive exposure to the theatrical arts in the city of Broadway. The program is provided at no cost to the students or schools.
Rosie’s Theater Kids is in schools that need it the most and have served over 60,000 students. They choose schools with high levels of need which is gauged by the percentage of students receiving free lunch, a strong commitment from the staff at the school towards the program and the ability to provide the space for classes and a piano. By helping children develop their artistic talents RTKIds helps them strive for excellence in the performing arts, in school and in life.
