Professional Arts Outreach Program 

We are so excited about the launch our Professional Arts Outreach Program at Arts High School of Newark, NJ. 

This year, Progressive Theater will produce a school musical for America's 1st Performing Arts School,  Arts High School of Newark, NJ! We want to showcase the brilliance that is often shaded by socioeconomic status. Arts High School is home to Sara Vaughan, Michael B Jordan, Tisha Campbell, MJ Rodriguez, and many more! We want to continue to add to that list by nurturing the young artists of Arts High School and giving them exposure and experience in professional musical theater. 

Students will compete for multiple Middle/High School Theatre Awards, like Paper Mill's Rising Stars and Montclair's Theatre Night Awards. As far as we know, there hasn't been participation of Newark's Essex County Schools in these ceremonies. Nominees get a shot at receiving high honors for their artistry and possible scholarships opportunities. 


In our efforts to make this possible, we have submitted for a grant provided by Essex County Local Arts Program that will help fund this extra curricular activity for the students of Arts High School. We also need your help as a community!
