ADELPHI UNIVERSITY DAY OF THE ARTS CONFERENCE
On Friday, October 11th, students in the Advanced Theater class attended a conference at Adelphi University's Garden City campus. Broadway actor, Ryann Redmond (currently starring on Broadway as Olaf in Frozen: The Musical) performed songs and was the key note speaker.
Students took workshops with Theater professionals in improvisation, comedy, stage make-up, prop design, set design, stage combat, dance and audition techniques in theater and musical theater.
The evening was comprised of entirely unrehearsed scenes based on audience suggestions and devised theater. Thank you for a lively and memorable evening!
And yet, of course, the theater is one of the few places left in the bright and noisy world where we sit in the quiet dark together, to be awake.
Congratulations to our Thespian Honor Society members!
