The 1940's Radio Hour
Commercial Graphics, Inc.
Book by Walton Jones
Based on an idea by Walton Jones and Carol Lees
Music by various composers
A different time is evoked in this marvelously theatrical and winning show, a live broadcast of a The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor's Algonquin Room on December 21, 1942. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music meant "Strike Up the Band" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" (both are in this show) is accurately captured as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mic, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.
"Totally exhilarating hour of singing, dancing and funny commercials." - The New York Daily News
Winterfest Dance Concert
Winterfest is a celebration of dance, musical theatre and the young performing artists of WCSPA. Winterfest is almost completely conceptualized and produced by students, allowing them to work from vision to creation in the most authentic way. Many students also design technical aspects of the performance: from the lights, sounds and costumes, to the choreography and dancing--it is a true student creation.
Since this production is driven by student concepts and artistic choices, it often has a broad range of styles, from the most contemporary hip-hop and beat-boy moves to more lyrical and modern forms. Several pieces are also choreographed by staff and guest choreographers, which often include tap, jazz, modern, ballroom, broadway and musical theatre style pieces.
