Performing Arts Students Travel to NYC

Our annual Performing Arts trip to NYC took place over this weekend! Students and faculty enjoyed a packed schedule of three Broadway/Off-Broadway shows and a visit to the MoMA. "There is nothing like enriching the academic classroom component with this experiential immersion into professional theatre," said Performing Arts Chair Julia Ohm.

The group had an unexpected opportunity to enjoy a backstage tour of Hello Dolly!, where they met Tony-nominated actress Kate Baldwin. And although our Penguins were far from Ashburnham, they were always close to the presence of Penguin Nation; Alumna Eva Lu '12 joined the group to watch the musical Come From Away and Gianna Paladino '17 made an appearance at the MoMA.

This extraordinary trip was made possible by the generosity of the Rockwell Family Fund in support of the Performing Arts. The experience inspires the creativity of our faculty and students, enhances their knowledge of current productions, and strengthens connections with students, past and present.
