The new fall season is a chance for the non-profit organization to increase programming and offer learning opportunities to students in elementary school, middle school and high school. Students in grades 1-5 will sing and dance in 101 Dalmatians, a fur-raising adventure featuring Cruella De Vil and 101 of the most adorable heroes to set their paws onstage. Students in grades 6-8 will bring to life the timeless (and always kooky) characters in the musical adaptation of The Addams Family. Snap-snap! And, it would hardly seem like Christmas without A
Christmas Carol
presented by students in grades 9-12. Bah, humbug!

The production is produced by 501c3 non-profit organization, Open Arts Alliance, dedicated to arts education and enrichment for children and senior citizens throughout the state of Connecticut.

Cindy Busani and Michael Busani will direct 101 Dalmatians with new program director, Jake Lloyd, directing both The Addams Family and A Christmas Carol. This season will mark Lloyd’s first season as the Program Manager for the organization – having previously served as Artistic Associate.

“We are thrilled to be offering three distinct opportunities that will allow students in each age bracket to grow artistically while enjoying the thrills of performing onstage,” Mr. Lloyd said.

In addition to the fall programs, Open Arts Alliance is excited to welcome back Leadership Councils for students grades 6-12.
