Glee actors take the stage in support of charity for ‘Glee’s Big Show’

On Saturday, 22nd February, some of Glee’s biggest stars took to the stage in support of charity and childrens literacy as they performed at the Young Storytellers Foundation’s (YSF) “Big Show”. Stars Darren Criss, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr., Dot Marie Jones, Becca Tobin, Ashley Fink and Curt Mega donated their time at the semi annual event which brings celebrities to the stage to perform a series of sketches written by 5th grade students in the YSF program.

Glee Big Show - FeaturedThe Young Storytellers Foundation is a local charity which promotes literacy through writing. Mentors work one on one with children at Los Angeles area schools to help them write their own sketch, which is later performed by actors at one of the Big Shows. And every year a few select children are lucky enough to have their writing chosen for one of the charities fundraisers, the Biggest Show.

This years event was organized in partnership with The Box Scene Project, a charity based in the Glee fandom that has helped to raise over $75,000 dollars for YSF in the last year. A donation amount matched only by the Walt Disney Company. And people say fandoms are frivolous.

This years show saw the actors perform scripts about mistaken black hole sightings, the power of reading and imagination, the negative effects of bullying, and more. As you can expect from 5th grade students, the stories were refreshing and honest. Silly, but full of depth and meaning. It’s the kind of event you’d want to attend no matter the star power behind it because not only is it for a good cause, but it’s an over all good time too.

And if you missed it, there’s still a chance to enjoy the fun. You can donate to YSF and get a download copy of the program, and even some backstage shenanigans. Not to mention purchase items signed by some of the cast who attended the event. All items support YSF and their mission. Check out this link for details, or donate directly to YSF.
