In The Heights- The Pre-School Edition!!

People have asked, “What ages is In The Heights for?” The answer is, “Everyone!!” Our Lighting Director found this video on YouTube by chance. It is absolutely adorable. Our theater teacher, Diane Zerega, already wants to know if she can come to Wagner High School!

From Wagner’s Media Arts Program…A Look at Opening Night

While this web page is dedicated to the Wagner High School theater program, there are over a dozen other learning centers within the school, and we try to work together on various projects.  Two students in our Media Program, John Tashiro and John Madigan, were at opening night with their cameras and they put this together.  It is simply amazing.

 

 

(Unfortunately, because of copyright restrictions, they can’t use music from the show.  YouTube will take the video down if they do.)

Wagner HS Theater on NY1 News!

NY1 News came to our rehearsal on Sunday not to just see how the show is going, but to highlight the role that many of the student performers had in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy last fall.  Some of our performers were directly affected by it, with their homes sustaining severe damage.

Tickets are available online- just click the link in the ad at on the right.
