May Productionat SHUFFLES
ABOUT THE SHOW
Prize pigs, plump pies, thrilling rides, blue ribbon pageantry, and more were all a part of our 2022 May Show – Our State Fair! For our spectacular return to the Kaye Playhouse stage, audiences were treated to tapping, singing, and celebrating from State Fair to State Fair across the USA, all the way to the Blue Ribbon finale!
In May 2021, SHUFFLES took the stage at Lincoln Center, Damrosch Park for our 2021 May Show – ABOUT TOWN: Roaring Through The Twenties.
We were proud to join some of the first arts organizations to safely gather outdoors, we shared our take on the history of Broadway as we danced our way through the decades to celebrate live theatre with our students, families, and community. Check out highlights of the show here!
“What a beautiful gift you gave to all of us! It was like watching a gorgeous explosion of pent up talent as our kids were finally together again, in person, singing, dancing and tapping their way “About Town.” Every May Shuffles show is memorable, but this year will always hold a special place for us. Thank you, Shuffles – for always having the incredible creativity, vision and determination that allows our kids to step into the spotlight and shine so brightly!”
– Marcia Ciriello, SHUFFLES Parent
