Wildarts is thrilled to be working with the participants of PS 84 to develop unique and collaborative art projects. Please stay tuned for announcements about upcoming Wildarts showcases at PS 84. In the meantime, check out some of these announcements from our work last year with Wildarts program participants at PS 163!
Our Wildarts participants have been hard at work for many months bringing this show together and we are thrilled to have a show date for you! The world of Willy Wonka will be brought to life during the first week of June!
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. Shanisse'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, Ms.Kim'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.
