Oftentimes, the New Year also means that your health insurance coverage has been renewed or has changed altogether. If you were sent a new health insurance ID card, prescription card, or eyeglass or dental card, please make sure you update that information with Lisa at the Health Center.

Winter Mainstage: Indecent – February 21 and 22, 7:30 p.m., Performing Arts Center
CA Dance Project: winter performance – February 28, 7:00 and 9:00 p.m., Dance Studio
Please join the students of CA’s chamber music program on Friday, February 7, at 8:00 p.m. in the SHAC dance studio for an evening concert of musical selections spanning over 300 years! Music of Telemann, Mozart, Borodin, Dame Ethel Smyth, and John Corigliano, among others, will be performed. We hope you can join us!
The Performing Arts Department will be kicking off the new decade with its mainstage production of Indecent by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel! There will be two performances — on Friday, February 21, and Saturday, February 22, each at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved by emailing Jessica Cloutier-Plasse (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The play is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture and by others as an act of traitorous libel. Indecent follows the history of the drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it. The CA cast has already been working with a dialect coach, a folk-dance specialist, and a podcaster who researched her grandmother’s Holocaust experience. The podcast can be found at Rachael Cerrotti – We Share the Same Sky. Rachael Cerrotti will speak to the entire school at an assembly prior to the play’s debut.
Join us for CA Dance Project’s new work on Friday, February 28, at 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. All performances will take place in the dance studio. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved by emailing Jessica Cloutier-Plasse (email@example.com).
