The Great Give – May 1, 8 am – May 2, 8 pm
By donating $5 or more during The Great Give you are giving students from all socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to grow and express themselves every time they enter our building. As the largest non-profit community arts school in Connecticut, we provided nearly $280,000 in financial aid and tuition-free programming last year. With your help we can reach our goals of $25,000 and 300 participants during this 36 hour online-giving marathon. Click here to visit our donation page.

Family Fun Night – May 4, 6:00 pm
Join us for a fun sing-a-long movie about a fearless optimist named Anna, who teams up with a rugged mountain man, Kristoff. Together, with his loyal reindeer, Sven, they set off on an epic journey to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Doors open at 6:00 pm, movie starts at 6:30 in the NMS Recital Hall.

Bonus fun: The NMS Triple Threat class will preview a section of their production of The Wiz before the movie. Bring a blanket to sit on and come in your favorite costume or your pjs!
