On Oct. 7, Garden City High School students from Mrs. McLaughlin’s Theatre Arts class attended Adelphi University’s “A Day with the Arts,” where they participated in hands-on workshops in dance, music and theater. Students also met Blaine Krauss, most recently known for his performance in the national tour of “Hamilton,” who served as the keynote speaker and guest performer for the day.

Students participated in workshops such as stage combat, improvisation, vocal and performance technique, and even how to apply stage makeup and create scenery. 

Theatre Arts is an elective offered at Garden City High School, and students in grades 9-12 can enroll in the course. 

“This day was filled with interactive and collaborative experiences that the students will never forget,” said Amanda Hauser, the district’s coordinator of music and the arts.
