The Magical Music for Life Foundation 2014 in Times Square


Magical Music for Life foundation is thrilled to present its third annual??Tunes in Times Square??benefit concert May 4, 2014 from 10am-6pm, in Father Duffy Park, Times Square, NY. We are especially delighted to be donating to this wonderful cause once again! Please check them out and or donate if you can!

Magical Music for Life’s mission is to develop and produce a wide range of musical projects that can provide a positive approach to everyday life for young children and their families. As a way to reinforce self-confidence and further self-esteem, each of these projects is designed to enable children to participate with professionals in the performance and/or recording of these productions.

The Magical Music for Life Foundation was formed in 1999 by parents concerned with the messages children were receiving from the music, TV, movies, advertising and video games they were exposed to. Bombarded with age inappropriate media that often focuses on sex and violence, it became clear to them that their children were missing the wholesome messages that were so much a part of their youth and the generations before them.

The founders concluded that parents, teachers and other guardians of our children were at a disadvantage in competing with these well-funded commercial ventures. How could a parent’s five minute oral explanation that “fighting is bad” compete with a three to five million dollar production of a video game that a child may play for hours, a game in which points are based upon body counts.

Working under the premise that music is an effective and popular medium for communicating with children, the founders pulled together a team of professional musicians, actors, writers and producers to use the power of music in a more constructive, responsible fashion.

The foundation’s two musicals,?The Adventures of Zak?and?Russell, the Hermit Crab, were created, written and produced as family musicals, with wholesome messages for children that would bring families together to enjoy the magic of live musical theatre, raise money for pediatric charities and offer some children a chance to sing on stage with a professional cast of actors. Many inner-city children have had extremely limited exposure to live theatre, and those in pediatric hospitals benefit greatly from the diversion and joy of a live musical performance. These are two important target audiences for Magical Music’s outreach efforts.

Since April, 2000,?The Adventures of Zak?and?Russell, the Hermit Crab?have been performed in numerous theatre spaces in 7 states as well as at the White House in Washington, D.C. Fifty three charities and special events used the show which played to over 27,000 audience members. Over 585 children have shared the stage with the professional actors, singing in the guest chorus in the finale.

Welcome to Theater Resources Unlimited, a 501c3 nonprofit organization created to help producers produce, emerging theater companies to emerge healthily and all theater professionals to understand and navigate the business of theater. Membership includes self-producing artists as well as career producers. Programs include monthly educational?panels, Producer Boot Camp workshops, a?new plays?and?new musicals?reading series, monthly programs for?actor?members, a Producer Mentorship program, a monthly community newsletter and much more.


TRU was formed to promote a spirit of cooperation and support within the general theatre community by providing information and a variety of entertainment-related services and resources that strengthen the capacity of producing organizations, individuals producers, self-producing artists and other theater professionals.

TRU achieves its mission through 1) maintenance of a member network of producers and other industry professionals in the New York area; 2) linking members to valuable resources both within and beyond the theatrical community, 3) providing public forums for introducing and sharing information, including specific requests for help and support, 4) publishing a printed and electronic newsletter for services, discount offers and other programs of benefit to the membership, 5) providing educational opportunities (including TRU-sponsored events and competitive scholarships) on industry-related topics and training, and 6) serving as producer for selected events that provide practical opportunities to the membership and other theater professionals.

TRU (Theater Resources Unlimited) was organized in March, 1992 by Bob Ost, the group’s current president, Cheryl Davis, its vice-president, and Gary Hughes, its former treasurer.?The initial goals were to bring together a supportive network of both established and newly developing producing organizations in the New York area in order to interface these producing organizations with other potentially valuable resources both within and beyond the theatrical community. As part of its networking mission, TRU gives newly formed organizations a forum in which to clarify their goals and become more effective in communicating and pursuing them. TRU also provides all participating organizations with the opportunity to learn and benefit from the knowledge of each other’s successes and disappointments, and to offer everyone a forum in which to make specific requests for what they need.

?From its beginning meetings in the founders’ living room, the organization has grown to where it now has an active membership of about 450, and a database of over 7000 theater professionals.?TRU holds monthly seminars on a wide range of subjects important to theatrical producers and directors, conducted by panels of experts from both the commercial and not-for-profit segments of Broadway, Off-Broadway and the motion picture industry. These seminars are open to the general public as well as members and are frequently attended by 50 or more actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers. TRU publishes a bi-monthly newsletter and a Weekly Email Newsletter Update, provides discounted tickets to members’ productions, frequently serves as a clearinghouse for theatre and rehearsal space, personal services and production props and materials, as well as offering a referral database for tracking down designers, performers, directors and any other staff that might be needed for a production.

Over the years, TRU has developed a structured range of programs to address the needs of its members.?TRU served as the umbrella organization for a co-production by several of its member companies as a part of the first annual New York Fringe Festival. From that experience, the organization expanded its production efforts by creating the TRU VOICES Annual New Play Reading Series, the TRU VOICES Annual New Musicals Reading Series in which TRU underwrites developmental readings of new works for theater, with the primary goal being to offer a developmental environment for new producers as well as new plays. The TRU FACES Cabaret Fundraiser was created to showcase self-producing member writers and performers, as well as network them with other producers.

In 2001, TRU began giving annual scholarships to The Commercial Theater Institute, to encourage the development of aspiring producers. By 2007, TRU had started a Producer Development Program for a select group of spiring producers, with a special interest in developing producers of color. The program features special monthly panels, plus the opportunity for consultations, mentorships and internships with top commercial producers and general managers. TRU now offers a series of Boot Camps, workshops created to help theater professionals learn and develop essential skills, including “Raising Money for Theater,” “Pitching and Presentation Skills” and “Weekend Intensive for Showcase Producing.”

A 2003 program was initiated to increase networking opportunities between producers and performers: an annual TRU Audition Event, a weekend of auditions in which 40 to 50 producing entities, plus casting professionals, can view the work of over 100 performers.?To service actor members, TRU has also added special Resource Nights in which perforrmers “Speed Date” with casting people, coaches and others, plus free monthly seminars for actor members.

TRU interfaces writers and producers with a unique series of Writer-Producer Speed Date evenings, and further guides writers in the business of theater with a “Practical Playwriting” workshops and a “Director-Writer Communications Lab.”

**Excellence in Playwriting Award Winner**
Written by Ann Magaha
Directed by Dev BondarinIvy came to the US from Jamaica on a work visa, but when she loses her job, must run from deportation and put herself at the mercy of others. She runs to Florida where she works multiple jobs for little money to support her family back home. The more money she is able to mail home, the greater her own estrangement from them; and that no matter how long she stays in ?the money tree,? she will never fit in, either with the white family she works for or the African-American family she marries into. It is the deep friendship she forms with Granny, the blind old woman in her care, that enables her to endure and ultimately to come of age.

On a small island in Indonesia, Reverend David Holiday lives with his wife and young son, preaching the word of God and trying to convert locals. When the son of a spiritual town leader comes to visit one evening with a mission of his own, the Reverends world is turned on its head. Is his son truly suffering from neurological damage, or is the spirit of the town working its way through him? His beliefs are questioned and family ripped apart as he struggles to maintain his beliefs while forcing others to change theirs.

Philip Cummings welcomes a young poet to his cold farmhouse on a winter?s night, but this is not the first Spanish poet to find him in the solitude of Vermont. Philip spends their one night together chasing the memory of a long-ago August when Federico Garc?a Lorca visited him on the shores of Lake Eden. The play flows back and forth through time and memory from that winter night to the August of 1929 ? at least half a century earlier – and the rented cabin in Eden. Philip doesn?t know how exactly he wants Lorca and their confused attraction is diverted into the task of translating Lorca?s poems into English, and hikes in search for talc mine abandoned somewhere in Eden?s hills. Like the impossibility of a true translation of poetry, their relationship becomes something else entirely, and Philip, now older, is at a loss to explain it to the young poet, or to himself.

SAT, FEB 2 @7:30PM :: NAC Lecture Hall
Resident Reading
Written by David Stallings
Directed by Heather Cohn

The swampland of Louisiana is hit with the most massive oil spill known to history. Barnacle, an old sea turtle, fights against man?s destruction, nature?s wrath, and her enemies of the wild to save her children trapped in the spill. Poetry, allegory, and movement, take this magical whimsy to tragedy.

All readings are followed by Question & Answer sessions.
