The Desert Academy Performing Arts Department students will be performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City during the 2017-2018 school year!
Performance: From Shakespeare and Moliere to Rodgers and Hammerstein and Christopher Durang, our students have the opportunity to be on stage in quality productions directed by our faculty of theater professionals.
