From Random Farms: "The Random Farms Kids' Theater is a not-for-profit organization that puts young people center stage. It is dedicated to creating a safe environment where children of all backgrounds are encouraged to discover the joy of theater within themselves - on and off the stage. Through its programs, students develop an appreciation for arts and music, cultivate leadership and life skills, and build self-esteem.
Random Farms further extends this impact beyond its own doors by providing community resources that increase access to the performing arts, and by motivating social change through live theater.
"The Random Farms Kids Theater, Inc. was created in 1995 by a then sixteen-year-old high school student, Anya Wallach, a resident of Random Farms in Chappaqua, New York, who hoped to form a local theater for neighborhood children. Its first production, "A Broadway Musical Review" was performed at the Random Farms clubhouse and incorporated thirteen local children ranging in age from eight to twelve years old and an audience of proud parents.
"RFKT has come a long way since then. Although it still goes by the same name, RFKT soon outgrew the Random Farms clubhouse. Its productions have been professionally staged at theaters throughout Westchester County, NY. Today, members come from all over Westchester and Putnam Counties, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut, and range in age from kindergarten through college. As of 2006, RFKT is the resident children's theater at The Tarrytown Music Hall.
"RFKT has also produced an abundance of Mainstage musicals, original musicals, workshops, summer programs, CD's, and has been featured on the FOX News Channel, "Today In New York" on NBC, and in The New York Times and the Daily News. In 2009, Random Farms provided the children playing the Munchkins in the national touring production of The Wizard of Oz at Madison Square Garden. In 2010, Disney Theatricals chose Random Farms to pilot The Little Mermaid, Jr.
"Over fifty kids from the theater have landed roles on Broadway, and countless others have been seen in feature films, television shows and commercials. . . Continued on website.
