*In the past we have been liberal with discounts for regulars, late registration etc. This has helped us grow and provide the best possible service. Now we have grown it is becoming difficult to handle personal payment requests (to the point we often have no idea who has paid LOL) so starting FALL 2015 only discounts available are online through the website. This also helps us organize communication for all students and parents. Anyone that has paid cash in the past is not in system and does not always get updates or emergency info.

GET COMEDY IN YOUR LIVES EVERY DAY BY BECOMING A COMEDIAN
Great fun, great cultural arts training (acting, comedy) and invaluable life skills – Public Speaking, Team, Listening, Focus, etc
William Fry, M.D., of Stanford University “Humor and creativity work in similar ways. by creating relationships between two disconnected items, you engage the whole brain.”
Ken Robinson – Author of “Creative Schools” said: “the whole system of public education around the world is a protracted process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not, because the thing they were good at school wasn’t valued, or was actually stigmatized.”

MONDAYS 8pm ON THE SPOT $25 plus ONE Drink minimum
Hot new hybrid show combines great singers inspiring great players. We have found some great vocalists – including Broadway and recording talent – to deliver some hot cabaret style songs (Broadway, Standards, Pop). Then members of the cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH spin into a scene inspired by the song’s title, lyrics and theme. Each of the scenes loosely tie together. 90-minutes later we have created a completely original book musical. The best of Long & Short form music intertwined with top NYC cabaret. The first two shows have nearly sold out. Book early for upcoming performances.
