HBAPA Holds Middle School Outreach Performance
The Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts, a magnet program for the Huntington Beach Union High School District, is seeking to bridge the gap between middle and high schools by offering a middle school outreach to local intermediate schools, in a first-ever Middle School Outreach Event.
The outreach event will aim to bridge the gap between middle and high school as 582 middle school students are welcomed to APA’s HBHS campus. Nine middle schools will be in attendance, with complimentary tickets and transportation provided by the Educational Enrichment Foundation for the Arts (EEFA). The students will receive a special sneak-preview performance of the Academy’s upcoming production of “Mary Poppins.”
After the performance, students will be invited to engage in a collaborative talkback session with the show’s APA student cast, technical crew, costumers, and orchestra.
“APA is in the process of heightening our presence among middle schools,” says Zach Edwards, APA’s Outreach Coordinator. “We’re excited to be sharing the arts with these younger generations!”
To establish an outreach opportunity for your school, please contact Zach Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
APA’s “Mary Poppins” runs from October 20, 21, and 25-28 in the Historic Huntington Beach Union High School District Auditorium and Bell Tower. Tickets are $22 for adults, $16 for students and seniors, and are available online at http://www.hbapa.org/see.
