Theater Pays a “Visit” to The Band’s Visit

July 09, 2018 | 12:47 am




This morning, #NSLCTHTR students heard from Broadway Stage Manager Mr. James FitzSimmons, who facilitated a discussion about the different types and facets of the theatre industry. FitzSimmons encouraged the students to “do their research” and immerse themselves in any show they see.

With Fitz’s advice in mind, the students enjoyed The Band’s Visit by taking in all that the musical had to offer—the singing, the dancing, the lighting, the set design, and the costume design.

One of the things that amaze students and staff alike is how relationships can be made so very quickly. Whether it is a 10-day program or a 6-week summer, those that participate come away with friendships that are very often called: ”better than my friendships back home”. The key to lasting relationships, community and culture is contained within that sentence. It is those who participate, who invest, who are present with others that create community and relationships that last. It is convenient while you are on the same schedule with others, but it is not necessary. Relationships and community are based on shared experience and how a relationship or community survives, thrives, or declines will be based in the quality, variety and frequency of the shared experiences.

Thank you for an amazing summer. It has been a pleasure working, living, and leading with all of you.
