Our Primary benefactor. The Blue Star Mothers are a group comprised of mothers that have a son or daughter serving in the military.
They help SFA by locating the families who need help, whether it is rent, heating bills, food, gas, pipe burst repairs in winter etc. SFA has also supported the Mercy Special Learning Center, The Allentown Center For Dyslexia, and scholarships for local students.
Sing for America began making small donations as a concert group in 2005. Since then we have grown but the benefactors have stayed the same. We thank our troops and every sacrifice they and their families make for all of us. ‘All gave some…some gave all’. There are sons without mothers to meet their girlfriend or dad’s to play catch with ….. daughters whose fathers will never walk them down the aisle and those who won’t have their mother hold their first born. Our work can’t change that but if we can let them know their mom, dad, is a hero and we thank them…that is a mission we all can get behind. Sing For America made a choice all the way in 2005, that we were not going to publicize the families who receive our help. Its become a necessary part of keeping our mission genuine and to make sure military families are never promotion for our group. If you would like to hear some of the personal stories please contact the ‘Blue Star Mothers of the Lehigh Valley’.
If inclined, you have an option to designate 100% of your donation go directly to a military family in need. Please visit the contact page to let SFA know or call directly 610-417-2189.
Sing for America has a promise to make arts accessible to all who seek. No one is turned away due to cost SFA programming. By supporting SFA you may be unlocking the world for a student.
SFA can put to use many material donations. Sometimes generous people donate things like

What Is Joseph? Let’s hear from the Composer himself!
“Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, Joseph is one of the most enduring shows of all time and reimagines the biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.”
“Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of the world’s most beloved family musicals. Released as a concept album in 1969, this multi-award-winning show has been performed hundreds of thousands of times including multiple runs in the West End and on Broadway, international tours and productions in over 80 countries!
The original Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration, the show continues to delight huge audiences annually, performed by amateur and schools groups and professionally in concert halls, arenas and theatres around the world.
Told entirely through song with the help of the Narrator, the show follows the story of Jacob’s favorite son Joseph and his eleven brothers.”
A Little History
“The first West End production opened in February 1973 at the Albery Theatre, with the Broadway production premiering at the Royale Theatre in New York in January 1982. Several major revivals in the West End and on Broadway, national tours and a 1999 film with Donny Osmond followed.”
“What would you do if you had all eternity?
Read from Samuel French!Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck’s unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
Based on best-selling children’s classic by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, Tuck Everlasting features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.”

Peter Pan 2017
MAUCH CHUNCK OPERA HOUSEWhen we set out on a path to produce this timeless classic we hoped it would be as magical as we had all envisioned. But what started as a twinkle in our eyes became a unforgettable trip to Neverland. The 1954 musical came to life on our stage, in a way that exceeded all of our expectations and left our audiences speechless as they revisited their own childhoods. We sprinkled them with fairy dust and they flew to the second star to the right and straight on til morning!
FAITH. TRUST. and a little PIXIE DUST
We truly became family on this stage and brought the community together for this once in a lifetime Christmas spectacular event!
Gabe Soto: Peter Pan‘I know a place where dreams are born and time is never planned..’“Being Peter Pan was the most freeing experience I have ever been a part of.”
YC Nina Worsley: PirateNina was called to lead many facets of the musical, her performance was exceptional!“From the first day I walked into bootcamp…….. to the very last day on the stage, when a little girl in the cast came up to me, hugged me as tight as she could, and walked away [she left] an impact she didn’t even understand……..Impact is a labyrinth that we have to navigate through.”
Nick Nelson: Smee As Nick made his way into his second production with SFA he brought a new twist to the character Smee.“From the moment we were introduced, mixing the chocolate river to our last song after Mike TV shrunk to the size of an action figure, we did our best to put a smile on people’s faces while still revealing truth to everyone who came to watch the show. As long as we’ve done that- then we’ve done our job! …………… I gotta say, it was a blast!”
YC Payton Brogna: JanePayton captured this role to a T, ending the show on the most beautiful high note!“Every time I walk on stage, energy and excitement rush through my body. Hearing the audience clap and cheer is a great feeling, but just knowing that you were able to share and let them be part of your story is something truly incredible.”
With One of our greatest Christmas show crowds we had over 1,800 in attendance
Thank You To Each Patron!
To every single business and person who helped THOUSANDS find Christmas in Neverland.
The SFA family was blessed to make a buzz and get great coverage from area outlets

Mauch Chunk Opera House
From 'Ticket' To 'Toast'
This show was truly a journey, from SFA’s very own GOLDEN TICKET from WB, to the New Years Champagne toast! Please enjoy it with us!
In order to pull off this enchanting musical we needed the most perfect location and having performed on most stages in the Lehigh Valley we knew we needed to look outside our own backyard.. So we took a big leap of faith and left the Lehigh Valley to produce this timeless classic. We had no connections in Jim Thorpe, it was about 45 min away from our home and we alot to consider because our following was back in the Valley. But the people at Mauch Chunk Opera House were so wonderful to work with from the very beginning that we knew this was meant to be.
Our challenges began as we attempted to make a timeless classic come to life in a new and exciting way while still capturing the story that everyone knows and loves. ! We held auditions and cast an extremely talented group of kids, professionals and adults. Our cast consisted of individuals not just from Lehigh Valley but from Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, New Jersey, Tobyhanna, etc. Once we had our cast our next step was to start advertising and getting the word out there! We did everything from poster-hanging, T.V. spots, newspaper articles and shamelessly plugging the show at all of our Christmas concerts. We even spend a couple weekends in Jim Thorpe at the Jim Thorpe Inn singing outside and making ourselves known to the hundreds of people that walk through this beautiful little town every weekend. We had to trust that if we got the word out there the audience would come. And we had to trust that if we created a beautiful product with our amazing cast we could, by word of mouth, get the audiences to increase night by night. Musical theatre requires a huge amount of trust in the people you choose to work with on and off the stage and we knew were putting our faith and trust in the right people to make this show a success.
The response was phenomenal! Our audiences were full! Schools brought their students, almost the whole little town of Jim Thorpe was there to see the magic, some public cam back TWICE because of how musch they loved what we presented.We felt so incredible so incredible as we realized that we pulled off one of our most successful productions to date. We overcame challenges that we had never faced before from being in a new area/space, attempting to work with new equipment including a movie theater style projector, working in a space that was designed for concerts, teaching 30 kids an a capella rhythm section with drum sticks and expecting them to perform it flawlessly, creating new types of costumes including full body mascot type animal suites, we even performed a show during a snow storm for a special audience even though half our cast was unable to make it through the storm. We did it!!!
