On February 12th of this year, 54 students from Dr. Hefferon’s Humanities classes and Mr Friedmans’ Acting classes went to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Twelfth Night on Broadway. Arts Alive made an incredibly generous donation to defray the cost of this event for our students. It was an absolutely amazing production which was enjoyed by all – as you can see from just a sampling of student responses to Arts Alive’s generosity:
Thank you so much for your generous donation to our field trip. I’ve never had the opportunity to see a live Shakespeare performance before, and this was such a great experience for me. I’ve read other Shakespeare plays – Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet – but I’ve never read Twelfth Night before, but after seeing the show, I absolutely loved it. Seeing the play acted out, I was able to follow the plot much more easily than I usually do when reading a Shakespeare play with translations every other page! It was hilarious, it was clever, and it gave me a new appreciation for Shakespeare’s work. So, again, thank you!
Thanks so much for discounting those Shakespeare tickets for us. Honestly, beforehand I had never really enjoyed reading Shakespeare in school, but watching on the stage performed by not only amazing but entertaining actors really just put me in awe. The fact that material written about 500 years ago can still have the same resonance on audiences today is really the ultimate testament to his work. Also, I saw Orlando Bloom there, who is just as dreamy looking in person.
Thank you so much for letting us see the extremely humorous and enjoyable production of Twelfth Night. It was incredible. Unlike other Broadway productions, I admired the commitment of the cast who made the production seem like we were all living during the time of Shakespeare. The presentation of the live theater, including watching the actors get dressed on stage, speaking without mics, and the live small band with a small audience on the stage, as well as the extraordinary and intelligent acting by the cast, created an iconic production that would make anyone understand the inspiring and unique works of Shakespeare.
Thanks to Arts Alive for helping our students experience such an unforgettable production!

Some photos from the Fourth Annual JJHS Student Film Festival, held this year at John Jay’s own theatre. Producer John Donkin gave a fantastic talk about the ins and outs of producing an animated feature at Blue Sky Studios. Here are some photos of a few of the student filmmakers as well.

I wanted to thank you all for sponsoring our 2014 trip to Lincoln Center in April. Nearly 60 students in Music History & Theory and Music Technology, traveled to NYC to visit Lincoln Center and all it has to offer. Students participated in a a backstage tour, heard the NY Philharmonic in rehearsal, and attended an evening performance featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, who performed the music of Dave Brubeck. It was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music!
ArtsAlive! is a true partner in every sense of the word, which is evidenced by your commitment to sponsor these exceptional artistic opportunities for our students year after year. Thank you so much for your continued support; the students and I greatly appreciate it!!!
