Last Wednesday, 29 students and 12 teachers participated in the fourth annual Blumenthal Experience, sponsored by Blumenthal Performing Arts with the help of The Doctor Family Foundation.

Activities included a tour of all six Blumenthal theaters and Q&A sessions with Blumenthal President Tom Gabbard, Vice President of Programming Douglas Young and other staff members.

Additionally, cast members from Broadway’s biggest blockbuster Wicked taught a special performance-based workshop just for the Blumenthal Experience students, before the group was treated to that evening’s performance of the sold-out mega hit. The day concluded with a post-show Q&A with cast members.

“The Blumenthal Experience is one of my favorite events of the year because it provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn many aspects of theater. It inspires all who attend to work hard for their dreams!” said Michelle Youngs, Blumenthal’s Education Programs Manager.

With budget cuts happening across the region, experiential programs like the Blumenthal Experience are as important as ever because they benefit high school students with a strong passion for the arts.
