2020 Senior's Fundraiser Helps Student Artists!

No Exodus was written and directed by Alethea Shirilan-Howlett, a Jamesville-Dewitt High School senior. The play was originally set to be performed by students in May. However, with schools closing for the remainder of the academic year due to COVID-19, their original plan became impossible.

The students did not give up! They continued to rehearse online via Zoom, and then decided to produce No Exodus virtually for the community and also  make it a fundraiser for the  CNY Arts Young Artist Scholarship Fund!

No Exodus is a multimedia performance which will be broadcast as a YouTube Premiere on Sunday, June 7th at 7:00 p.m. EST.

It features the talents of not only the cast, but an ensemble of student musicians and visual artists as well. The show itself examines our relationships to art, as well as the "personal and cultural stakes of holding onto and letting go of the past and the stories we tell about it. "
