On May 22nd, Theatre Arts and Musical Theatre students from our school participated in the Alliance of Teen Artists Festival which took place at New Jersey City University. The students presented a scene and two monologues for the Small Group Drama Division, a song for the Small Musical division, and two larger numbers for the Large Group Musical Theatre and the Large Group Drama Division. Each performance was followed by a very useful critique by NJCU Musical Theatre professors.
