Hands-on learning in NYC
Twenty-four Matanzas High School students, teachers and parents headed to New York City on June 1 for a five-day trip, sponsored by teacher Noel Bethea through EF Tours Broadway and the Arts.
The Metropolitan Museum Radio City Music Hall and Lincoln Center provided the travelers with a context for arts. Other favorite highlights included an up close and personal Q&A with a Broadway artist, a drama workshop in the city and seeing “Beautiful the Carole King Musical” and “King Kong.” On the last day, students were surprised with a lunch at Ellen’s StarDust Diner. Students were inspired by the food, culture and historical places and hope to bring the spirit of the city to the stage next spring for MHS production of Disney’s “Newsies” in next April.
