Last Friday we took an overnight trip to New York City. On the first day, we visited the Supreme Court and got to sit in on a trial. While we were there, a guide told us about the court system and how different parts of it work. For example, we learned what sort of things happen in family court and how those differ from civil court. That night we went to see a show called Stomp. In this show, there are performers who create music using everyday objects. There is little to no dialogue in this show, apart from the occasional exclamation or “hey!”. Some of the ways they make music in this show are incredibly creative. For example, for one song they had a bunch of tubes and were drumming on those. There was another song where they were strapped onto the walls and were drumming on various objects attached to the walls. The next day we went to Ellen’s Stardust Diner for lunch. In this diner all of the employees are performers and have either been on Broadway or are trying to get on Broadway. Throughout your meal, they will sing for you. These songs can be from movies, from Broadway, or just songs you’d normally hear on the radio. After that, we went on a tour of NBC studios. While there, they showed us around a few different studios and told us about the history of the building and the company. After the tour, we were able to make our own show. This was really fun to do, and I’m excited to see the final project which was emailed to us. Overall, this was an amazing trip, probably the best, and I’m excited for our next trip to Washington D.C.
