We have a lot of great local talent in our schools. And every year, the schools produce musicals that showcase that talent. You could try to follow each school's schedule and attend them all. Or you could get a good sneek preview at The Stanley Center for The Arts.

The Stanley will once again come alive with the music, singing, dancing and acting of select Central New York’s area High School’s drama and music departments on Saturday February 17th at 2:00pm! (Stanley Center for The Arts via Facebook)

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, you'll have a chance to see scenes from several local high school musicals, from Proctor, New York Mills, Oriskany, Central Valley Academy, New Hartford, and more to be announced soon. These kids have been working hard in their schools rehearsing the shows. Just think of how hard it will be to move onto the big stage and try to replicate that. And think of how inspiring it will be for those students to create in The Stanley's space. This sounds like a perfect opportunity to show them our support.
