A Virtual Evening with Danny Ray Caraballo
Live from our stage and straight to your living room! In this brand new performance opportunity, NWT hands the mic to alumni and local artists for an intimate showcase of music, dance, spoken word, and poetry. Tune in for a night that reminds us that the arts serve as a catalyst for social change and awareness.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Danny Ray Caraballo is a Latinx Cleveland-born performer, now based in New York City. National Tour credits: PJ MASKS LIVE! SAVE THE DAY (Night Ninja), BUDDY! THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY (Ritchie Valens). Regional credits: IN THE HEIGHTS, NEWSIES, CHICAGO, HELLO DOLLY. NWT productions: SWEENEY TODD, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, WEST SIDE STORY, CATS, MERRILY... ALONG. Received his BFA in Musical Theatre from Kent State University. None of this would have been achieved without the support of his Families (Caraballo, Ortiz, AND NWT).
ABOUT ESPERANZA, INC.
Esperanza has one important and overarching purpose: to support Hispanic student success. Through our efforts, local Hispanic students now know, understand, and leverage their potential, and parents not only have the tools to help their student succeed, but are given tools – such as free ESL classes at multiple skill levels – to help themselves succeed, which results in a more stable and resilient family. Ultimately, Esperanza’s academic support, and educational resources provide Hispanic students with a solid foundation for a bright and promising future.
This is a free family-friendly event. Donations may be sent to Danny Caraballo (@DannyRCaraballo on Venmo) or Esperanza, Inc.
Donations of all sizes create artistic opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults each year.
