Students in grades K–12 are invited to collaborate in original multi-media projects and performances to benefit New Jersey families affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Sandy Project was conceived by Middletown resident Kathy Connolly, an award-winning actor and choreographer, as an opportunity for the children of the shore community to creatively express their feelings about the storm. All proceeds from the performance will be donated to the Middletown Disaster Relief Fund.
The group will meet once a week for six weeks at the Middletown Arts Center (MAC) located at 36 Church Street. During the workshops, the children will explore and create through song, dance, music, poetry and art. There is no cost to participate in the project and workshop dates and times will be scheduled shortly.
An end-of-session performance will be planned at the MAC during the weekend of April 20th-21st for which tickets will be sold. The performance will coincide with an art exhibit and sale presented by the organization, “Save the Shore.”
