Forty-two members of Fort Plain High School’s OK2XL gifted and talented program traveled to New York City for a fun-filled day on April 5, 2023. Highlights include a trip to the Museum of Broadway, lunch at John’s Pizzeria, located in an abandoned church on West 44th St., and the Broadway show “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which is based upon the novels by J.K. Rowling.

The trip was a hit with the students. Here are some of their reactions:

Vandwane Hisert: “I like the quality time spent with my peers.”

Aidan Guile: “It was the best show I have ever seen.”

Monika Kulczynksi: “I loved the effects in the play and the acting was amazing. The museum had great photo opportunities.”

Sadie Mollel, referring to both the museum and the show: “The most phenomenal artwork I’ve ever seen! I will go back over and over again.”

Brady Keane: “The special effects during the show were unbelievable. ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is a visual spectacle.”

“The students were very thankful and appreciative of the opportunity they had to go to the city and to experience all of these events,” said English teacher Lisa Trembley.

The trip was supported by the Arts in Education program.
