Art & Drama Stars


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".

Here we are performing an excerpt from our upcoming Spring production of "The Lion KIng" at February's NYCESPA conference. There was a crowd of over 200 principals and administrators and our kids really shined!!

Please check out this slideshow of photos from our incredible holiday production of "The Nutcracker" held in December 2015.

...and this one from our trip to Lincoln Center where our student performers had a chance to see New York City Ballet's production of the Nutcracker!
