Cue the lights: It’s performance season for city schools

It’s the season for school plays and year-end arts performances, and we want to hear about city schools’ stars-in-the-making.

Some of the performances we know about so far: Frank Sinatra School of the Arts is currently in the middle of its run of “The Children’s Hour,” Lillian Hellman’s play about lies and intrigue at a boarding school. Democracy Prep Charter School’s production of “The Music Man” opens tomorrow evening. And on Monday, more than 400 students from 18 city middle schools will perform excerpts from their school musicals at an event at the Majestic Theater hosted by actor Corbin Bleu of “High School Musical.”

Is your school putting on a play you’d like the city to know about? Submit it to our events calendar. Or send us a photo of your performance at
