MANASQUAN — After nearly two years of work, the Jack Nicholson Theatre at Manasquan High School was able to celebrate completion of a major renovation with a ribbon-cutting ceremony before the board of education meeting on Tuesday.
Superintendent Frank Kasyan, along with Robert Schatzman, president of the Manasquan Alumni Foundation, and Mark and Paige Morro, of the Liv Morro Memorial Foundation cut the ceremonial ribbon in front of a packed, and newly renovated theater.
Superintendent Kasyan thanked both Mr. Schatzman and all of the Alumni Foundation for their collaboration and commitment to the theater renovation project. He also thanked Mr. and Mrs. Morro, who had donated significant sums of money and effort into helping the theater reach the point that it was presented at.
He also invited Madison Schille, chorus teacher, and Melissa Galano, dance teacher, to offer choral performances and a dance number, marking the first “productions” to be held on the newly renovated stage.
“Today marks a significant milestone in our journey towards offering our students an exceptional fine arts experience and establishing Manasquan High School as one of the premier educational institutions in the state,” said Superintendent Kasyan.
