play cast and crew

NEW EGYPT, NJ, January 22, 2015~ The New Egypt Middle School (NEMS) recently completed their production of  The Little Mermaid Jr.

“It was an outstanding success,” said NEMS Principal Mrs. Andrea Caldes. “With a cast of almost 40 students, plus an amazing backstage crew that was kept very busy, audience members were truly transported under the seas to the world of King Triton and his headstrong daughter, Ariel.”

Popular tunes such as "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl" featured talented student vocals as well as creative costumes and sets, including a moving ship.

“The light-up jellyfish and sparkly crab were a true hit, as were the moving tentacles on Ursula's costume,” said play director Mrs. Diane Carr. “Beautifully designed costumes from mermaids to chefs to flamingos complemented the well-crafted sets and catchy tunes.

“Even the crew had parts to play when they scurried across the stage trailing choppy seas waters,” said Mrs. Renee Hogan, NEMS English Language Arts Teacher. “This was an outstanding production from costumes to vocals to choreography - truly something for everyone.”

New Egypt Middle School Art Featured

The Plumsted Township Council for the Arts requested artwork from NEMS to decorate the municipal building for its annual “Meet and Greet” event that was held on Wednesday, November 12th. Ceramics, drawings and paintings created in Mrs. Ruggerio's art classes adorn the foyer of the building. Art work featured was created by students in Art I and by students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Music was provided by some very talented eighth grade students, Kenny Leone on saxophone, Isabella Beck with the harp, and Caleigh Smith with the French horn. The audience was amazed as they played various melodies throughout the evening. Refreshments and cookies were enjoyed as the parents and students viewed the many works on display. They will be on display through the month of December so parents and their children can stop in to enjoy our students' artwork during municipal building hours.
