Dear Friends and Circuit Productions’ Extended family,
We at Circuit Productions Inc. (CPI) are so very thankful for 2016! The year challenged us to be productive and resourceful in creating original programs. We produced more than 50 performances and workshops, reaching more than 21,000 constituents in New York City and State.
CPI expanded our workshops and performances to seniors, youth and families through a number of grants including the Healthy Aging Initiative, Support Our Seniors, Cultural After School Adventures, and the Cultural Immigrant Initiative. In the past year, CPI was able to serve more than 5,000 seniors, 20,000 youth, families, and general audiences.
Once again Circuit’s artists thrilled audiences at Central Park’s Harlem Meer Performance Series. Orlando Marin- The Last Mambo King headlined at one of NYC’s top venues for Jazz, Flushing Town Hall. Orlando, “turned the audience” out on the floor. The crowd begged for more as the concert came to an end.
This year, we exceeded our commitment in providing high quality, cultural and educational arts programs. We identified new strategies towards our fundraising goals by collaborating with local and community retailers. We are happy to report that our partnership (the first, we hope of many) with Lilith Outlet Stores resulted in an evening of Tap, Jazz & Couture, a fundraiser for CPI’s art education programs. Our efforts would not be possible without your ongoing support and contributions. Circuit’s free programs would not be possible without it!
DONATE NOW to keep quality programs and cultural arts resources available to New York City communities.
Celebrate music, dance, theater and arts education and keep CULTURE ALIVE. End the year with a generous donation to Circuit Productions!
Once again we wish you all a peaceful, joyful and prosperous 2017!
Susan Goldbetter, Executive Director
& Roz Smith, Director of Education & Community Engagement

Feedback from the field
from tap dancer Max Pollak after a recent show at PS 770K in Brooklyn:
What a great experience all around!
The teachers were really friendly, helpful and efficient! The students were incredibly well behaved, highly energetic and enthusiastic about participating. Even the security guard was really nice and very interested in the performance! She told me she could only listen from her desk outside the auditorium but loved listening and grooving to it.
As performers my percussionist and I had a ball performing for everyone. Some of the students approached me afterwards to express how much they enjoyed the show. A few of them said they also had European parents!
Looking forward to a return engagement!
