An update now to a story we brought you last week: Cambridge Central School's Native American mascot and moniker were discussed at last Thursday’s school board meeting. A change doesn’t appear imminent.

Schools, colleges and professional sports teams across the country have been transitioning away from using offensive nicknames and mascots based on racial identity. A graduate of a Washington County school is leading the call for his alma mater to do the same.

Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education in Cambridge, New York will present “Annie,” the Broadway smash musical, April 5 through 14. Performances are Fridays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.

The production is a collaboration between Hubbard Hall and the Cambridge Central School, which for the past three years have worked closely together to produce the musical at Hubbard Hall while giving students training in acting, singing, dancing, voice & speech, text and improvisation with Hubbard Hall artists. The CCS Drama Club at Hubbard Hall gives students opportunities to grow as individuals and artists while learning to take risks, work as a team and express themselves clearly and creatively in front of an audience.

We’re going to talk about “Annie” now – and preview Hubbard Halls’ 2019 Spring Gala which will take place on May 18 and will honor WAMC's Joe Donahue with the 2019 Making Art & Community Happen Award.

Here to tell us more: W.B. Belcher, chair of Hubbard Hall Board of Directors, owner of Word Horse Strategies, LLC and published author and David Andrew Snider, Executive & Artistic Director of Hubbard Hall and Adjunct Professor at Skidmore College.
