For the second year in a row, Macy's is spreading Christmas cheer to one hundred different schools. For qualifying schools who submit an application, Macy's will provide scripts, funding, and other essentials so that children can experience both the magic of theater as well as the holidays. Here's the press release from Macy's:
"Now through Sept. 16, interested elementary and middle schools can visit yesvirginiamusical.com to submit a grant application. The grants will be awarded to the first 100 eligible schools that complete the application process. All interested schools also are able to access the digital toolkit on yesvirginiamusical.com, which contains the downloadable, royalty-free script and score, select songs, inspirational videos and full details for grant application."
