KJPAS Trips and Photos

Each year, performing arts trips are offered to the students of the studio. Some tours are one night in length, while others last as many as eight nights. Below are descriptions and photographs from some of our past excursions:

New York City

The Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio embarked on a theater trip to New York City from August 7-12, 2013. The theme of this year's trip was "Off The Beaten Subway Track", taking the students to sites that they would not normally go to with another school trip or on a family vacation. From dinner in Spanish Harlem to visiting lesser known museums such as the Frick and the City Museum of New York, to a private tour of a Broadway Wig shop, KJPAS students were immersed in "the real New York". We also took in a Yankees game (sitting with Broadway pit musician, Alex Bender), went to see four shows (Newsies, Peter and the Starcatcher, The Potted Potter, and How To Be A New Yorker), and sang at a Karaoke bar in midtown! Highlights included meeting up with (and dining or going to the park with) many Broadway actors, including Michael Fatica (the dance captain for Newsies), Amy Justman (Company, White Christmas, Passion and the national tour of Phantom of the Opera), Thom Warren (The Lion King), and Emily Behny ("Belle" in the national tour of Beauty and the Beast, and "Nessarose" in Wicked).

Stratford Theatre Festival of Canada, plus Toronto and Niagara Falls

In July of 2006, we ventured all the way up to Canada to visit the Stratford Theatre Festival, the leading Shakespearean theatre festival in North America. With an annual budget of 56 million dollars, we were certainly impressed! We saw four shows: South Pacific, Oliver, Much Ado About Nothing, and London Assurance. We met with leading actors Cynthia Dale, Ted Baerg, Brian Bedford, Colm Feore, and Scott Beaudin, 16-year-old television actor Marc McMulkin, and with Bert Carriere, the musical director and composer for the entire Stratford Festival. We were given a backstage tour of the Festival Theatre and also of the Festival Costume Warehouse. In Toronto we saw the world premier of the musical Lord of the Rings, and toured the Rogers Center (the only stadium in the world with a retractable roof), and went up the CN Tower (the skypod at 145 stories is the tallest observation deck in the world!). On the way home we stopped for a day to visit one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls. We even took the Maid of the Mist boat ride to the base of the falls!

In August of 2004, we embarked on a great adventure to New York City. We had orchestra seats to four Broadway shows including Wicked, Hairspray, Musicals of Musicals and The Producers. We met with several theatre professionals including Lion King actor Thom Warren and theatrical talent agent Peggy Hadley. The highlight of the trip was when Hairspray actor Joel Vig took the group on a private backstage tour! We also had the opportunity to tour the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. We visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and roamed through Central Park, 5th Avenue and Greenwich Village, The Southstreet Seaport, Ground Zero, Little Italy, Grand Central Station, and St. John the Divine Cathedral.

The Barter Theatre

In the fall of 2002, 2003, and 2004, we traveled to Abingdon, Virginia to see South Pacific, A Tuna Christmas, and Gypsy. The Barter Theatre is the second oldest theatre in the country!

This is the only replica of Shakespeare's Original indoor theatre in the world! It is a 16th century theatre with 21st century technology.
