The Drama Club at St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope Regional School recently staged the Long Island premier of Nora’s Ark- the Jazz Musical. In this modern retelling of Noah’s Ark, Nora is a scientist who predicts the melting of the poles and the flooding of the Earth. Rescuing the animals at the Bronx Zoo, Nora and her daughters rent a cruise ship. It seems all are saved, except that daughter Fitzi forgets to bring food. The predators and prey must work together to find a solution. The show explored the themes of global warming, cooperation, freedom and survival.
Eli Yamin (music and lyrics) and Clifford Carlson (book and lyrics), attended the Saturday night performance with their families. Before the performance, they visited our cast and crew to discuss the creative process behind the show and to warm up the cast.
