Arts to Grow (ATG) is currently in its fifth year of musical theater programming at Cypress Hills Local Development Corp (CHLDC). Each year, all middle school students and staff in CHLDC’s after-school program at IS 171 collaborate on a full-scale Broadway-inspired production, led by ATG teaching artist Patricia Runcie. From January – April, through intensive acting and play-writing workshops and rehearsals with Runcie, Arts to Grow Teaching Artist and Broadway guest artists, students master stage presence, character development, singing, dancing, and costume/set design. Students also assume leadership roles as stage managers and assistant directors, exploring the wide range of careers in theater.
This year, students’ hard work culminates with Under the Rainbow, an original production inspired by the musical The Wiz. We hope you will come out and experience this unique event!
