Kid Pan Alley on new Julie Andrews Netflix Series
Julie Andrews has a new Netflix series, Julie’s Greenroom, and Kid Pan Alley is on Episode 6. It’s a series about the creative arts and children produced by the Jim Henson Company, the creators of Sesame Street. Our episode features Sara Bareilles. We were filmed at a summer camp we did last summer in Amherst, VA called Summer Stage. All the episodes will be released on March 17th.
Bouncin’–the new Kid Pan Alley Musical
We have a new musical featuring mostly Kid Pan Alley songs. Paul Reisler, our founder and Artistic Director, wrote the additional songs and the script. It’s a moving story of friendship that dissolves and comes back together in crisis. George Mason University presented a staged reading in December and we’re currently working on booking it for full performances. Here are some excerpts from the December performance.

“Kid Pan Alley is where creativity starts. Without this amazing program, most kids will never know the joy of writing and singing their own song.”
