During its fifth season, Schmata Productions will showcase a May performance of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr., with a cast and crew of 4th– through 12th-grade students. Participants in the musical-theater program fully engage in the theatrical process, from audition through performance, and eventually competition. The program also hosts group projects that prepare students for the stage and develop self-assessment skills and personal creativity. The organization relies upon donations to fund student scholarships that cover the costs of production, including technical supplies and scripts.
When Cindy Kerr's 12-year-old son, Ryan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, she began making pillowcases for him to brighten his hospital room and his spirits. He was so cheered by the gift that she started creating pillowcases for other children staying in the oncology unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Since its early days, Cindy Kerr's pillowcase project has grown into ConKerr Cancer, with a network of thousands of volunteers who make the pillowcases spread across North America and South Africa. ConKerr Cancer has created and delivered more than 600,000 pillowcases to children across the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain in the past five years.
The colossal dodgeball event is expected to pin at least 400 against 400 in all-out rubber-ball mayhem to raise money for Life Unchained, a social nonprofit organization that provides seed money to local start-up nonprofits and dream projects. Registration will begin at 10 a.m., followed by the first fated volley at 12:30 p.m. The action will last until the final player standing on either team gets hit with a dodgeball or an insatiable craving for pancakes. After the ball-slinging massacre ends, participants can revel in food and drink specials at the AT&T Pavilion after party and compare bruises forming in the shape of badges of honor. Each participant will receive a free T-shirt and ticket to the Philadelphia Wings lacrosse game later that night; guests are encouraged to tailgate until the Wings take flight at 7 p.m. The last survivor on the losing dodgeball team will secure a coveted luxury weekend stay at the Loews Hotel, and 10 players from the winning team will be selected via raffle to win $100 in prizes.
