RTA’s music program began at Sing Sing with a vocal workshop for West Side Story, our first musical, and took on a life of its own. Vocal workshops at Green Haven Correctional Facility led to a revue performed for the prison population, which responded enthusiastically to such Broadway classics as There is Nothing Like a Dame.
RTA has ongoing vocal and keyboard workshops at Woodbourne Correctional Facility and the women's program at Bedford Hills has produced three musicals, most recently, Bedford Sings Broadway! as well as a popular new workshop in songwriting.
"I have not sung since high school or since I have been in prison. This is not the place where one wakes up singing."
