Each year, first and second grade students are invited to audition for our extracurricular performing arts ensemble, The PS 170 Art and Drama Club.  Those who are selected, participate in rigorous rehearsals once a week after school and two Saturdays each month, leading up to their two annual musical theater productions.  In these rehearsals and performances, students sing, dance, and act in major theatrical works, refining and then showcasing their incredible talents and hard work.  Some of our recent performances include "The Nutcracker", "Annie", "The Wiz", "The Little Mermaid", "Beauty and the Beast", "The Lion KIng", and "A Christmas Carol".
