A trip for those who love travel and art of all kinds! We will see at least three Broadway shows, visit the MoMA (Modern Art Museum), see famous art and architecture sites, have a behind the scenes technical theatre experience, and participate in a hands on theatre workshop.

These will offer travelers some freedom to choose; however, will still be led by teachers on the trip.
