In honor of my Bar Mitzvah, I am producing Louisville’s Got Talent to raise money to support the operations of CenterStage Acting Out. CenterStage Acting Out is a program that takes live productions to schools across our city. I have developed a passion for the arts. I am very fortunate that throughout my childhood, I have been able to go to many plays and musicals at CenterStage, the Kentucky Center for the Arts, and even all the way in New York City. I want to raise money for Acting Out so other kids can be introduced to the arts and have the same wonderful experiences with theater I have had in my first thirteen years of life.
