Lets celebrate the Joys of the Season for all. As a commemoration of its 10th anniversary, Crystal Academy presents the Coral Gables community with a special gift. On Wednesday, December 18th, from 10am to 11am, all general public is invited to participate in a dynamic artistic show surrounded by songs, music and dance as Crystal Academy (CA) students and Area Stage Company (ASC) present the secrets of The North Pole. CA and ASP in their universe of equality and inclusion will take you on an emotional trip to this magical land at the Coral Gables Government City Hall.
“Area Stage Company’s Inclusion Theatre Project is really proud to share the achievements of the students we are privileged to work with. The art education we provide helps our community to appreciate what these talented students from Crystal Academy are capable of” said Maria Banda-Rodaz, Executive Artistic Director, ASC.
Prepare to feel this land of magic, adapted in a unique fairy-tale representation and originally created by John Jacobson and Mac Huff. The North Pole Musical will bring you goblins, elves, snowmen, Rudolph and all his deer friends, festive toys, Santa’s helpers and more as part of this great function that comes alive during this wonderful time of the year. Under the production of CA and ASC, The North Pole musical will remind you of the true values of the holidays: community, family, brotherhood, friendship and love.
“We are forever grateful to Area Stage Company for their commitment, professionalism and love when working with our students”, said Mary Palacio-Pike, CA Founder & President, who is also a mother of a 17 year old with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Irma Becker, ITP Coordinator, from ASC also commented: “North Pole Musical in Crystal Academy is a celebration of diversity, life, and a message of faith. We believe that ART is for everyone”.
