(Miami, FL) - Wrapping up a weekend of festivities, on Monday, February 15, Discovery Family Channel celebrates President's Day with a special presentation of "Broadway at the White House" at 8:00 PM and 11:30 PM (7PM and 10:30PM central) and the film "The American President" at 9:00 PM (8:00 PM central).
Broadway at the White House: 8:00 PM and 11:30 PM (7PM and 10:30PM central)
The stage is set, the orchestra is ready and the curtains open as a spotlight shines on some of America's best and brightest teens who hope to make it on The Great White Way. In celebration of President's Day, cameras will follow deserving high school students who were chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend an all-day symposium on careers in theater. Held at the White House, and alongside some of the biggest names on Broadway, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue will transform into a space for students to explore their creative aspirations and dig into molding their emerging talent. The special will be hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Morrison with special guest, First Lady Michelle Obama. Also participating throughout the day will be Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Estefan, Christian Borle, Cicely Tyson and other current Broadway performers.
Throughout the day the special will follow approximately 40 students from both public arts high schools and after school arts programs, from around the country, as they attend master classes in their chosen field of study. Led by the professionals they hope to become, workshop subjects will include acting, directing, hair/make-up/costume design, music composition and musical theatre. In the afternoon, the students will attend a Q&A session, where a panel of Broadway professionals will offer advice, discuss their own careers and how they got started, and be available for questions. The day will culminate with an evening performance by the Broadway stars for participants and First Lady Michelle Obama. The performance will feature music from Finding Neverland, Fun Home, An American in Paris, On Your Feet!, School of Rock and Something Rotten.
The American President: 9:00 PM (8:00 PM central)
How does the widowed leader of the free world balance his many obligations to his country with the ordinary demands and everyday rites of courtship? When President Andrew Shepherd, quite unexpectedly, falls in love with Sydney Wade, an environmental lobbyist, he must overcome obstacles not faced by average citizens; he must worry that the public's right to know will collide with the desire for personal privacy. Discovery Family Channel offers the opportunity to, once again, view this beloved romantic comedy-drama film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox and Richard Dreyfuss.
