West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts at Uptown! held our 2nd Annual Children’s Gala on March 16, 2019 from 1 to 4pm at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center. We are a non-profit organization working to bring performing arts to the area youth. Our goal is to raise funds to enhance the children’s performance program while helping keep the tuition affordable for our families.

Fun for the whole family!

The WC Studio Children’s Gala will include performances by the Professional Youth Program, Uptown Singers, West Chester Studio Singers, Broadway Kids Cabaret and Broadway Kiddos. In addition, guests are invited to enjoy a reception and silent auction while their children attend theatre games hosted by our professional theatre staff.

Help support our Rising Stars and our growing education programs by becoming a sponsor of our annual Future Stars Gala.
