HSA Theatre Alliance to Present HARLEM HOLIDAY LIVE!

The Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) Theatre Alliance presents a joyous celebration of the season that is sure to have you dancing and singing in the isles.

HARLEM HOLIDAY LIVE! features the power and artistry of HSA's creative crew of gifted artists and the talents of their theatre, music and dance students, under the guidance of Artistic Director, Alfred Preisser.

Tickets are on sale now A. Brown Paper Tickets, with performances scheduled on December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 & 17 at HSA Theater, 649 Saint Nicholas Avenue, NYC 10030.

"Harlem Holiday Live is a celebration of all we do at HSA and I'm happy, proud and grateful to be working with the young artists and Directors of all of our creative departments. We're all aware we live in a world that is sometimes frightening and disjointed; Harlem Holiday Live! is an answer to that, an expression of hope, purity, the human spirit that's destined to survive and thrive".

The 75-minute variety show has been designed to lift spirits and celebrate that which unite us. It will feature performances by the Dorothy Maynor Singers (HSA's choir) and The Harlemettes (HSA's answer to The Rockettes), and our youngest dancers, the Junior Ensemble performing the magical Baby Ballet. Also taking the stage will be Brianna Reed, HSA dance instructor and former principal dancer with the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, and Amber Nicole, of the HSA Theatre faculty.

In addition to HSA's homegrown talent, the show will include special guest appearances by members of the Institute of American Musical Theatre, The Harlem Japanese Gospel Choir (winners of the 2010 Best Choir Award at the McDonald's Gospel Fest), as well as the Legacy Arts Ensemble.
