Drama Show 2018

A tremendous thank you to the Staff & Students of PS 101 for making the 2018 Drama Show “iVision” a huge success!

iVision follows the story of two siblings who complain about spending time with their family when they would rather be on their phones. As a result, in a dream sequence,  the kids go back in time (through the decades: 1950’s-2000) to learn the important of family values and spending time with your parents.

You can watch video clips in the PS 101 Video Library
