Newburgh Free Academy has TALENT
AIDA – A Timeless Love Story
Newburgh Free Academy seems to be over flowing with local talent. I am always in awe of the fact that NFA can take a group of high school students and put together a production that outshines many of the theater departments at the college level. From sets, to crew, lighting, directing and the orchestra NFA is always spot on with their productions. The talent that emerges on stage is outstanding.
Verdi’s Classic Aida was transformed by Elton John and Tim Rice and now performed by NFA students. This weekend the curtain went up and three shows were packed with delighted theater goers. Aida is a classic story of forbidden love and tragedy that resulted. Well choreographed the dance segments were quite remarkable. The amazing lead singers are certainly gifted, blessed and were remarkably insightful, each giving a dynamic performance. If not their families and friends, Elton John would be proud.
Watching any musical has a special place in my heart. Musicals at NFA have an even bigger place in my heart as my daughters were a part of past productions. Although my daughters are no longer in school I still love it when spring comes and it’s time for the NFA musical Nostalgia hits me when I walk through the door of NFA and sit down while the orchestra begins tuning their instruments. I no longer have a student in the production and no bias to give a rave review. Every year the students earn it themselves. This year the cast of AIDA was no exception.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of AIDA!
