 THE CHER SHOW  is based on the life of Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere Bono Allman or as her friends call her, Cher! The kid on a tricycle, vowing to be famous. The teenage phenom who crashes by twenty. The glam TV star who quits at the top. The would-be actress with an Oscar. The rock goddess with a hundred million records sold. The legend who’s done it all, yet still scared to walk on stage. The wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. The woman, looking for love. The ultimate survivor, chasing her dream. They’re all here, dressed to kill, belting out all the hits, telling it like it is. And they’re all the star of The Cher Show. Your favorite songs are all there including “I Got You Babe,” “The Beat Goes On,” “Bang Bang,” “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “The Shoop Shoop Song,” and “Believe.”

From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America, and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything. ON YOUR FEET! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making, and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet. Get ready to get on your feet, and dance to the smash hits Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, 1-2-3, Live For Loving You, Conga, and many more.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth.

Based on the animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. This fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.” Ariel wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

Two NY EMMY® Nominations in 2022 for 'BROADWAY AND MAIN' Publisher Islip TV

June 30, 2022 — The National Academy of Arts and Sciences New York Chapter announced the list of 2022 Emmy® nominees and Islip.TV / The National Video Journalist Network (NVJN) got two nods.

The two stories that stood out above the rest were:

CATEGORY: EDUCATION/SCHOOLS - NEWS (NO PRODUCTION TIME LIMIT)
TITLE: "Visualizing Resistance - Animating the Story of The First Slave Rebellion in The New World"

1521, just 29 years after Columbus' first voyage and almost 100 years before African slaves were brought to the 13 colonies - the first documented Slave Rebellion in the New World took place in the Island of Hispañiola. To commemorate the 500th anniversary of this event, The Dominican Studies Institute partnered with City College's Electronic Design + Multimedia department to bring this historic letter to the Spanish Crown to life. Our cameras followed the class for a semester.

Organized by: CUNY Dominican Studies Institute, CUNY City College Electronic Design and Multimedia

 

The second story was part of the 2021 TEENYS virtual celebration of the performing arts by high school theater students in the Town of Islip. Due to COVID limitations, Brentwood High School students did not put on any shows. In order to give seniors one moment in the spotlight, the Islip Arts Council arranged for the students to perform one number just for our cameras.
