We're not sure if "awesome" is the best adjective to even begin to describe how great this charity event is, but we'll use it anyway — this is so AWESOME!
A select group of cast members from the hit show Glee will be donating their time on Saturday to perform plays written by 5th graders!
Dot Marie Jones, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Cory Monteith, Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr. and Naya Rivera will take the stage at The Biggest Show 2011 and act out scripts written by children from The Young Storytellers Foundation.
The foundation develops literacy through the art of storytelling and hopes that by seeing their words being acted out on stage, the children involved will discover the power of their own voice!
The Glee cast isn't just appearing at the charity event out of thin air though. Brad Falchuk, one of the writers and producers of the show, is a huge supporter of Young Storytellers.
Montheith sounds pretty stoked for the event too and wrote on his twitter:
"Can't wait to act in plays by 5th graders from @BFalchuk 's charity at @youngstory 's Biggest Show on 10/15!"
