With their busy schedules of singing, acting and dancing who would think the stars of Fox’s hit series ‘Glee’ would have time to perform in plays by fifth graders? Well, it looks like they cleared their schedules and will now be making the dreams of children come true.
This Saturday, Oct. 15, only a few of the actors and actresses from ‘Glee’ will take the stage and act out scripts written by children from The Young Storytellers Foundation. The stars include Dot Marie Jones, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Cory Monteith, Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr. and Naya Rivera.
They are joining ‘The Biggest Show 2011’ benefitting the foundation which develops literacy through the art of storytelling. Underserved children from public schools have the opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life on stage.
Not only will they be supporting these young storytellers, but they are also attending for Brad Falchuk, one of the writers and producers of ‘Glee.’ Falchuk is a huge supporter of the charity.
Monteith and Shum took to Twitter and tweeted their excitement, “Can’t wait to act in plays by 5th graders from @BFalchuk ‘s charity at @youngstory ‘s Biggest Show on 10/15! For tix: http://tinyurl.com/3lrvmsn.”
Other celebrities attending include Raven Symone, Kay Panabaker and Trevor Donovan.
The foundation aims to inspire children to discover the power of their own voice. If anyone can inspire, it is the stars of ‘Glee,’ as they do it every week on their show.
