Bringing Broadway to Nicosia

The American Academy Nicosia will bring a little bit of Broadway to the heart of the capital on Friday when students take to the Pallas theatre stage to razzle dazzle us with performances of musical tunes.

During two performances on Thursday the students will show off their talent when they take us back to the time of Charles Dickens and Oliver Twist. After learning how to pick a pocket or two, you are sure to be asking for more. And more there shall be as we are introduced to orphan Annie all over again and reminded that tomorrow is only a day away.

Oliver Twist and Annie are all grown-up now but Peter Pan is another case. The stage will take us to Never Land where the lost boys never grow-up and Captain Hook is the bad guy.

With woman’s day just passed, the performance will do its part in celebrating women with songs from Mamma Mia, My Fair Lady and Hairspray.

The performance then turns to a much more dramatic and darker story with the Phantom of the Opera… who was always really there, inside our minds.

Thursday gives us two chances to catch the show, the first at 5.30pm and the second at 7pm. Tickets can be purchased from the Academy every day from 8.15am until 3pm and from members of the Parent Teacher Association Committee.

The performance forms part of the school’s annual celebration event International Day. This event reflects the multiculturalism of the school and aims to promote the different cultures represented within the Academy through Music, Dance and Theatre.

The event is under the auspices of the Mayor of Nicosia, Constantinos Yiorkadjis.
