The New 42nd Street / The New Victory Theater
January 28, 2011
For the past ten years our school has been a member of The New Victory Theater. We have had an excellent working relationship with the teaching artists, and the administrative staff. We are all thrilled about being given the opportunity to expose our students to such a wide variety of genres of entertainment. The fact that the performers come from all over the world makes it especially relevant in a diverse city like the one we live in. The workshops we have participated in, both teachers and in-school with students, have been relevant to the shows we have seen, and have given our students the confidence to explore the arts themselves. The in-school workshops are done in a way that makes the children feel special, and the teaching artists set a very supportive, comfortable tone.

The only thing I would like to see happen that would be an improvement is the way the students are dismissed from the theater. Because so many school groups come out to return to school at the same time, it might be useful to stagger the dismissals a little more.
Advisor & We have brought our students to a variety of shows, most of them have never seen a show on Broadway.
