On Friday, April 28, at 5:45 am, one hundred and fifty Centennial High School students traveled to New York City for a field trip. The group of students consisted of art, photography, advanced theatre, and students in Humanities.
Those in advanced theatre courses went on a tour of the New Amsterdam Theatre. This tour allowed them to see the backstage of a broadway stage and learn about the history of the theatre.
Additionally these students participated in a broadway rehearsal workshop learning the song “One Short Day” from the musical Wicked. Following this workshop they enjoyed lunch and had time to tour around Time Square.
Students in art got the opportunity to visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and also walked around Time Square. The photography students visited The Met and Central Park to capture the beautiful scenery and nature.
To finish the day in the city all the students and chaperones met up for dinner at Planet Hollywood. After the meal everyone took their seats in the theatre to enjoy Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.
