2017-2018 Artist Residency

The artist-in-residency programs at Marcy Open are funded by the Marcy Arts Partnership. Funds are raised at our annual Marcy Arts Gala each Spring and through various grants. The funds raised at the Marcy Arts Gala go directly to the arts programming. 

All School Residency

Project Success - 6th, 7th and 8th Grades

Project SUCCESS Workshops:   In 6th, 7th & 8th grade, each student participates in a series of eight Project SUCCESS-facilitated workshops held monthly in the classroom during each school year.  Workshops are led by highly trained, Project SUCCESS facilitators, using proven grade-specific, cumulative curriculum, that is aligned with the English standards-based academic curriculum and is specifically designed to help students set and achieve goals.  This is done through a variety of activities—drama exercises, group games, writing explorations, guest artists, discussions, and/or whatever else the facilitator thinks would assist the achievement of the mission within a particular class.

Middle School Musical with Project Success

The Marcy Middle School Musical:  Each year, 6th through 8th grade students who wish to, have the opportunity to take part in the Marcy Middle School Musical directed by Project SUCCESS.  Students work in front and behind the scenes, directly with professional directors and musicians and quality sound, sets and lighting.  Often times, staff and students assist with many aspect of the production (scripts, costumes, set construction, technical support, etc.)  Recent productions have included Little Shop of HorrorsInto the WoodsSuessicalYou’re a Good Man Charlie BrownOnce on This Island, and I AM.  For a full list of previous Marcy Musicals, follow this link:
