So, when I heard that Glee was showing a sneak preview at my local Arlington Cinema N Drafthouse on April 6, I was skeptical. However, it ended up being real. This looks pretty exciting, especially since I will be seeing the cast at the White House Easter Roll on Monday (Thanks to Justin, who saved my bacon).
So if you are a GLEEK and live in Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Miami, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
you can come out and see a sneak preview and help a worthy charity.
The Press Release after the jump.

The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1989 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership year-round with its founder, The Recording Academy®, to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage. Campbell’s Labels For Education program is proud to be the official education partner of the GRAMMY In The Schools programs. For more information, please visit www.grammyintheschools.com.
