NCA Presents Hansel and Gretel

Nesin Cultural Arts (NCA) students will collaborate to present an Integrated Arts based performance of Hansel and Gretel. The production is driven by NCA students in the Children’s Chorus, Aspiring Young Musicians, Visual Arts, Dance and Stage Craft programs. The performance will be held on May 19, 2018 at 3pm at the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre for the Performing Arts, 22 Saint John St., Monticello, NY 12701. Tickets are a $5.00 suggested donation at the door. Students are always free.

The NCA students explored all facets of creating a production including: performing, creating orchestral arrangements, script, sets and lighting design. The students participated in literary analysis workshops to gain an understanding of the original story. The purpose of the Integrated Arts program is to give students experience in all art forms including music, theatre, dance and visual arts. Students choose their area of interest to develop an in depth understanding and hone their skills. The outcome of this collaborative experience is the student driven production.
