This is the fourth year that Broadway stars have come together to support LIHSA, which is the only Long Island performing arts high school program that offers world-class training and preparation for students who are interested in exploring and pursuing careers in the arts. Last year's show was a sell out!

"It is deeply touching for these talented Broadway entertainers to donate their time to put together an unprecedented performance to support LIHSA," said Nassau BOCES District Superintendent Dr. Robert R. Dillon. "The evening will not only help raise awareness of our stellar arts programs, it will also provide our current and future LIHSA students the opportunity to see how successful they can become!"

For 45 years, LIHSA has been a powerhouse for the development of Long Island's creative and cultural sector, offering programs in Theatre, Dance, Music, Special Effects, Digital Media, Fine Arts and Film. LIHSA challenges current thinking and practice while producing graduates who are innovators and leaders. The school's alumni are working all over the world on stage, on screen, behind the scenes and leading major events and organizations.

Broadway Supports LIHSA is being co-produced and co-directed by Jerome Vivona, a Broadway veteran and current artistic director of the American Theater Dance Workshop in Mineola, NY, and Stephen DeAngelis, renowned Casting Director and Producer of over 300 different Broadway concerts at venues in New York and across the United States. DeAngelis has recently been named as Producing Artistic Director of the new Pocono Center for the Arts. This team has been working with the Campaign for LIHSA, which is affiliated with the Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation. The campaign was created over three years ago to help raise funds and awareness of LIHSA. Members includes educators, artists, students and parents committed to supporting the only public arts high school on Long Island.

The evening is scheduled to feature a variety of performers with Broadway shows to their credit. Performers will be announced soon. To learn more about LIHSA or to see who will be performing, visit www.nassauboces.org/lihsa.
