The Teenys Revisited 2021

CLICK HERE TO SPONSOR THIS YEAR'S TEENY AWARDS

For the past 12 years, The Teenys have celebrated high school theatre students in the Town of Islip. This year, some high schools put on virtual shows while other programs opted to postpone performances until next year. The one thing all of our schools have in common is that our students’ amazing talents were not seen by the usual mass audiences.

The Islip Arts Council believes that this year, more than any other, our students must be recognized for battling through these historic times and for keeping the arts alive in their lives. That is why we are proud to announce THE TEENYS REVISITED 2021!

The Teenys Revisited 2021 individually celebrates each high school program. You will get to see excerpts of their virtual performances or original numbers created just for our cameras. Students and faculty will share how the arts help guide them through the quarantines and remote learning.

Throughout the summer, join us as the Islip Arts Council ensures that all Long Island gets to witness the creativity, talent, and enthusiasm of the performing arts students in the Town of Islip. There will be 9 to 11 feature videos created, marketed, and distributed over 8 to 10 weeks. Each video features one school.
