VPA Students at the White House!!


 On Monday November 16th, our own VPA students, Erika Rollins and Jonathan Palmer ( both Sophomores) to the White House to work with the Discovery Channel's "Broadway at the White House"!

Erika and Jonathan were the ONLY Prince George's County students present along with 3 other students from Baltimore County to represent the state of Maryland.  Forty Musical Theatre students from Los Angeles, CA, West Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey were lucky enough to spend the day in workshops about Directing, Makeup and Lighting, Choreography, Dance and Song Writing.  We met, talked to and listened to great performers and composers like, Whoopie Goldberg, Matthew Morrison, Kristen Chenoweth, Gloria Estefan, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Schwartz,Cicely Tyson, Mia Michaels and others! We were greeted by Mrs. Obama (Jonathan danced the conga with her!)

It was a day never to be forgotten!  Please congratulate these two students for representing our school and county so very well and tune in to the Discovery Channel on Thanksgiving Day at 8pm to see our students (and maybe even me beaming in the audience!) on stage with these great performers. "Broadway at the White House"  - go Northwestern VPA!
