Memorable numbers included toddlers, dressed like Shirley Temple, performing “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and an all-boy Hip Hop class showcasing their interpretation of “Men In Black” battling it out on stage dressed in either business suits or as aliens. Ballerinas kicked and twirled their rendition of the Can-Can. Throughout the show, performers popped out of the audience showcasing their acting skills by moving the audience through a day at the movies--from driving to the theater, buying tickets and popcorn, watching the movie and providing commentary at the end.

“We are extremely proud of our performers,” said Kim Buccheri, Madison Area YMCA Performing Arts Director. “The highlight of the day was seeing kids come off the stage glowing with happiness--being greeted by their parents and grandparents--it was priceless.”   

The Madison Area YMCA is located at 111 Kings Road, Madison. For more information on the Performing Arts Department and classes, visit the Y’s website at Performing Arts clinics are offered this summer with registration currently ongoing.
