Every couple years, our department takes a trip to New York City over spring break. Everyone who knows Mrs. Elhai well enough and can pay for their ticket is welcome. Together, we book rooms in a hotel near the theatre district and spend around 6 days in Manhattan. We sight-see, watch Broadway shows, tour colleges, and participate in workshops. Parent and teacher chaperones are of course welcome but for many students, it is their first experience with what it is like to live on their own. Students bond, learn more about theatre, and get to spend a week in one of the most beautiful cities on earth.
