Volunteers handed out Subway sandwiches to nearly 800 at-risk-youth after they were treated to the Valley Youth Theatre’s June production The Wiz at the Herberger Theatre in downtown Phoenix on June 21. The special, free matinee was made possible through Valley Youth Theatre’s “Sponsor-A-Seat” program in which the kids’ tickets are purchased through donations. The program, now in its 16th year, has allowed more than 8,000 children to experience what may be their first-and-only theatrical performance
