2019 Winter Showcase
WildArts Winter Showcase is here!
Come one! Come all! 'Tis the jolliest time of year and the best time to cheer for your talented kids' talent. From singing, to dancing, to telling jokes and acting a fool, the kids at WildArts want to share what they've learned so far this year.
The performance will begin promptly at 5:30 PM and end at 7:30 PM on Thursday, December 19th, 2019 in the PS 163 Auditorium. You and your family are cordially invited to watch, cheer, and enjoy the multi-talented participants of the WildArts After School Program at PS 163.
Normal program will run after school that day.
2020 Spring Showcase
Everything Musical! Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (CANCELLED DUE TO SCHOOL CLOSURE)
WildArts' big Musical production this year is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! We held auditions in early February and cast some major talent! If your child has a speaking role or an understudy role, please download a digital copy of the script, and find a casting list below!
At WildArts, we believe in an "all hands on deck" approach to collaboration. This means, everyone has a role to play in the production of our show. All WildArts participants are a part of our Stage Crew. Our Musical Stage Crew members act as mimes, puppeteers, sound effects designers, costume designers, props and sets hands, assistant directors, lighting designers and much more! It is our philosophy that everyone should have an opportunity to shine on stage (or behind the scenes if stage fright is a concern). The focus of our Theater program during Musical season is to choreograph our Stage Crew and Cast in preparation for the big day!
Our musicals also incorporate Ms. Lisa's hard working Dance groups in the form of large blockbuster dances! We also rely on Mr. Alvin's Music classes to write original songs for the show and to train our performers for choral and solo pieces. Behind the scenes, Mr. Brendan's Visual Arts classes focus on designing sets, props, and costumes for the show. In short, Musical season touches just about every aspect of our programming--producing a show that's all about the vision of the children involved.
