Before performing her piece at a concert or performance class, Isabella always holds her sheet music on her lap for one last review. Isabella is young, but her playing belies expectations. Isabella also enjoys science, history, math and running. One day she shocked her parents when she started running at her school’s track, and didn’t stop until she had run ten miles. At the age of seven she declared, that she wanted to be a neurosurgeon, but after her first beloved teacher, Nelly Berman passed away from a congenital heart disease, she changed her mind. Now she plans to be a heart surgeon. Today, Nelly’s daughter, Elena Berman-Gantard runs NBS, and she is sure Isabella’s musical achievement will make her a great doctor, and music will always be a part of Isabella’s life.

This summer, we especially look forward to using our renovated spaces, which include a new gymnasium, art studios and gallery, and an innovation lab where four recently-added ‘STEAM in the Summer’ courses will be held.” Close to 100 high school students take part in the Summer Programs while elementary school students and incoming freshmen are also eager to explore MMA’s six-acre campus. In addition to several co-ed options, many of the summer offerings are just for girls and allow prospective students the chance to get to know MMA’s campus, meet faculty members, and/or coaches, and experience the school’s programs first hand. Most notably, the all-girls academic enrichment option is a pre-eighth grade program called the Summer Academy. Summer Academy is a full-day, four-week program designed specifically for girls entering grade eight. The Summer Academy helps students begin the transition from an elementary school to a college preparatory high school program. Students take courses, such as pre-algebra, language arts, study skills, and public speaking. There is also a fitness class built in that includes options such as volleyball, dance, and yoga. As one happy Summer Academy parent noted, “My daughter loved the program, learned a lot, and made great new friends.

TIMOTHY CHOOI, VIOLIN Artist, speaker, and activist Vishavjit Singh, aka Sikh Captain America, visited Friends’ Central School in January to host a storytelling talk and workshops for the entire Middle School. rtist, speaker, and activist Vishavjit Singh, aka Sikh Captain America, visited Friends’ Central School in January to host a storytelling talk and workshops for the entire Middle School. Singh’s talks focused on issues of identity, stereotypes, adversity, bullying, the power of our life narratives, and using art as a tool for social change. In order to challenge what it means to be “American,” Singh has donned the uniform of quintessential American superhero Captain America on the streets of many American cities. In his talk with Friends’ Central Middle Schoolers, Singh’s message called students to challenge labels and stereotypes. Singh explained, “All of us stereotype people. We have to look beyond the stereotypes. That’s the power of art – you can use those images to change stereotypes.” Singh challenged students to dig deeper. “My life and your life, they are full of labels. We are actually walking, talking stories. Don’t judge people based on looks. Find out what their stories are.” After his talk, Singh held cartooning workshops with Middle School students in each grade to teach them how to use cartoons and imagery as tools for changing stereotypes and encourage social change. Singh commented, “I’m not one to immediately voice my feelings when someone is causing me pain. Instead, I take all that frustration and put it into my cartooning.” Singh encouraged students to “Look for ways to project yourself and your values into your art.” Middle School Principal Alexa Quinn shared, “We were thrilled to welcome Vishavjit Singh, otherwise known as Sikh Captain America, to Middle School. He’s fighting intolerance and stereotypes through his art and stories. We are so grateful for his important and inspiring lessons for us all.” Singh has been featured in Teaching Tolerance magazine published by Southern Poverty Law Center highlighting his work (Behind the Shield: Teaching Tolerance Magazine). He has been featured in Facebook and AdCouncil campaigns, with messages and work covered by a number of news outlets, including the New York Times, NPR, BBC, MSNBC, The Atlantic Monthly, Huffington Post, The Guardian and Time Magazine. His cartoons, writings and performance artwork can be seen on his website at

spin” (The New York Times). In the wake of a nuclear threats, wildfires, bomb cyclones, and mudslides, Washburn’s armageddon-inspired play feels timelier than ever. The earth is barren, society has collapsed, and America as we know it has come to an end. Gathered around a fire in the woods, a group of dauntless survivors search for meaning amidst the rubble of the apocalypse. Beginning immediately following a nuclear disaster, our band of heroes gather to find connection, camaraderie, and community by reconstructing the classic Simpsons episode “Cape Feare.” Seven years later, the group begins to tour a production of the episode across the mid-west. In a third act of epic proportions, the theatre troupe’s legacy erupts into an operatic liturgy. Washburn’s dark comedy asks us to consider life beyond smart phones, WiFi, and social media and explores how the popular culture of one era can evolve into the mythology of another. The Simpsons, America’s longest-running sitcom and animated series, has documented and satirized politics and pop culture for over 25 years. Never too afraid to offend its audience, the series’ creators have poked fun at America’s most polarizing issues—topics ranging from immigration to gun rights, the environment, and feminism. According to director Jill Harrison, “this play is extraordinary because it’s a terrifying piece of theatre. It begs the question—what hope remains in the face of destruction? How do we hold on to one another when the world falls apart? Can parables and stories continue to uplift the human spirit in the wake of utter devastation?” The piece showcases the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unthinkable tragedy. According to dramaturg Ann Marley, “Today, people feel as though the world is falling apart. Nuclear weapons are a major threat. Strangers cannot be trusted. Natural disasters are destroying cities and countries. According to scientists, we have crossed a threshold of environmental damage that we will never be able to repair. I think many people who see this show will see their worst fears come to life—the destruction of the earth and the disintegration of the human race.”

Marley continues, “Mr. Burns foregrounds hope in connection, healing, and storytelling. It shows people coming together, laughing, and creating something together after they have lost everything. During times of great stress, when the world is full of violence and hatred, a night of theatre that gathers people together to laugh makes an undeCast members prepare for “Mr. Burns, a post-electric play,” running February 6-18, 2018 at Villanova University. niable – though small – impact. As live performance loses audiences to the convenience of online streaming, Mr. Burns argues for the continued relevance of theatre and the importance of coming together to tell stories in a shared space.” The cast includes acting scholars Mina Kawahara (Quincy) and Kara Krichman (Chorus); second-year graduate assistants Sisi Wright (Maria) and Leo Bond (Gibson); first-year assistant Mary Lyons (Chorus); and theatre graduate students Shawnee Rowe (Colleen), Lee Stover (Matt), Tara Demmy (Jenny), Brishen Miller (Sam), Tina Lynch (Edna), and Mark Wheeler (Chorus). “Mr. Burns, a post-electric play” runs at Villanova Theatre in Vasey Hall from February 6-18, 2018. Speaker’s Night, immediately following the performance on Thursday, February 15, will feature illuminating insights from the Rev. Anne C. Thatcher, scholar and Associate Rector for The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Philadelphia. Vasey Hall is located on Villanova’s main campus at the intersection of Lancaster & Ithan Avenues. Performances will be held Tuesdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets run $21-$25, with discounts available for seniors, students, MA in Theatre alumni, and groups. Tickets may be purchased at the Villanova Theatre Box Office (M-S, 12-5 p.m.) in person, by phone: 610-519-7474, or online at During the run of “Mr. Burns, a post-electric play,” Villanova Theatre will be collecting donations to support ConPRmetidos, an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization operating from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Extensive outreach efforts included theatres, galleries, schools, artists, screening rooms, and all theatre-supporting restaurants and businesses. Philly Theatre Week was the brainchild of Goldenberg and her team at Theatre Philadeling phia. The idea dates back to nearly a year ago when Goldenberg was in search of a new Yanni Perform y at the Academ of Music flagship program that would focus on inclusivity and reducing barriers to participation. Page 6 “Theatre Philadelphia wanted to create a new signature program that would draw even more attention to the region’s theatre organizations and artists,” added Goldenberg. “We wanted to make a big and impactful statement about the importance of theatre in our city and region. Like Philly Beer Week, Center City Restaurant Week or Philly Tech Week, we wantin Tim McGraw ed to have a festival that celebrated theatre alongside our city’s other flagship events that ch Wildwood Bea Concert are nationally known and recognized.” 7 e Pag During the development process, Goldenberg researched models in other cities, including Chicago and Washington DC. She said, “Both cities saw growth in new audiences, returning audiences, and an overall growth in theatre awareness. The main difference between Theatre Week in other cities and in Philly, is that I wanted our Theatre Week to reflect our city. Like Beer Week, Tech Week or other city-wide events, I want our residents and visitors to have an access point to theatre however they would like. Some people may not have the interest or inclination to see a full production.” Residents and visitors interested in learning more about Theatre Philadelphia and Philly Community News • Education • Healthy Living Theatre Week are invited to a special kick-off party on February 8, 2018 at Yard’s Brewing Company (500 Spring Garden Street).

See “Fairy Mist” by Valerie Craig, in the “Shared Space: New Work” exhibit, featuring recent paintings by Valerie Craig and Martin Campos. ayne Art Center presents two exciting shows featuring the incredible talents of Radnor Township artists. “Expressions of Radnor” and “Shared Space: New Works by Valerie Craig and Martin Campos” will be on exhibition from February 11 through March 10, 2018. Both exhibitions will open with an artist reception and awards ceremony on February 11, from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. Wayne Art Center will celebrate with over $500 in prizes presented by juror of awards, Michael Doyle. A Wayne Art Center instructor for over 15 years, Doyle attended Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where he received the Lambert and Emma Wallace/Cadwalader prize. Prizes are generously sponsored by local Wayne businesses and Wayne Art Center. This event is free and offers the public a chance to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. A suggested donation of $5 is greatly appreciated. Wayne Art Center’s “Expressions of Radnor” was established as part of Radnor Township’s centennial celebration over fifteen years ago. “Expressions of Radnor” is open to all artists who are legal residents of Radnor Township. Artists are eligible to submit two pieces of original artwork including oil or acrylic painting, watercolor, pastel, photography, original print, mixed media, ceramics, jewelry, stained glass or sculpture. Work must have been completed in the last two years and not previously displayed at Wayne Art Center. “Shared Space: New Work” will feature recent paintings by Valerie Craig and Martin Campos. Both Craig and Campos are professional artists and have been long time faculty at Wayne Art Center. Valerie Craig has drawn and painted nearly all of her life. In 1998, she left her career in nursing administration to pursue her passion for painting and the love of the outdoors. With more than 25 years in the field, Valerie has supplemented her in-depth independent study with highly acclaimed workshops. Her oil and watercolor paintings include still life, landscapes and street scenes and reflect her connection to the local Pennsylvania countryside as well as the rural farms and beaches in southern New Jersey. She has traveled frequently to Ireland and within the United States, seeking inspiration and opportunities to paint in the field. Valerie is a regular participating artist in the Wayne Plein Air Festival and teaches ongoing painting workshops at Wayne Art Center throughout the year. Arcenio Martin Campos attended New Mexico State University for studio arts, and then the University of New Mexico for studies in art history. He began drawing on his own as a child, and between schools acquired much of his fine art education from independent study and private instruction in the human figure. From 1999 through 2002 he taught small classes in cast drawing and facilitated open figure drawing groups in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Martin recently graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, receiving a Certificate in Painting. He is currently searching for stories for the figures he’s drawn over the course of his life. Martin is on the teaching faculty of Wayne Art Center. Craig and Campos will present an Artists’ Talk on Friday, March 9 at 12:30 p.m. in the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery. In addition, Campos will offer a workshop focusing on “The Figure Form Drawing to Painting” on Saturday, April 7, and Sunday, April 8 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Register at The Wayne Art Center is located at 413 Maplewood Avenue in Wayne, PA and adjacent to the Radnor Trail, offers state-of-the-art, handicap-accessible facilities, free private parking, and is within walking distance of public transportation. Wayne Art Center galleries are open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and Saturdays 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. For information, call the Wayne Art Center at 610-688-3553 or visit to review the exhibition prospectus.
