The Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation offers the most amazing opportunities to students throughout the area.

The Foundation is named for the late Jamie Hulley, the daughter of Judy Primavera and Fred Hulley, an Amity grad who loved to create. she was a singer, dancer, actress, artist, and all around wonderful happy young woman.

Her parents keep her memory alive by offering scholarships and grant money to others who share her enthusiasm for music, the theater and many other artistic mediums.

The money to fund the foundation is provided by donations and the annual Arts Gala. The COVID pandemic hurt everyone in some way, and the foundation suffered last year when the Gala couldn’t take place due to health concerns.

But thanks to the science that brought us COVID Vaccines, and a better understanding of what preventive measures can be taken to keep everyone safe, the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation event is back!

This year’s An Afternoon for the Arts featuring Carole’s Kings, an all male Carole King Review featuring the music of “Beautiful” — “Locomotion,” “I Feel The Earth Move,” “So Far Away,” “One Fine Day,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” and so much more.

The fun family day will take place on Sunday, Nov. 7 at The Brady Center for the Performing Arts, Amity High School, 25 Newton Road, Woodbridge.

Doors open at 1 p.m. with a Lite Reception and Raffle Preview. The Show begins at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $45 each and can be purchased by clicking HERE 
or click on the AD in the Right Column of this site.
Your ticket purchase allows the foundation to continue to provide enrichment classes for young artists in all genres – music, dance, visual arts and theater. All proceeds will be dedicated to their educational programs, scholarships, and community projects throughout New Haven and Fairfield Counties.
Current CDC guidelines for indoor performances will be followed.

The Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts.

Established in 2002, the foundation is named for Jamie Alaine Hulley, the daughter of Judy Primavera and Fred Hulley, who was only 20 years old when she died, leaving behind a legacy of talent and creativity.

Shortly after her death, the Jamie A Hulley Arts Foundation was established to help other young people learn about and appreciate all of the things Jamie loved. for nearly 19 years, it has helped thousands of children, teens, and college students realize their potential for creativity and gave many underprivileged children opportunities they otherwise would never have been able to experience.

Each year, the foundation raised the majority of its funds through a Gala event that always took place in the fall. The Coronavirus hit and forced the cancellation of last year’s fundraiser, which adversely affected the foundation and its ability to provide as much for all of the programs it normally would.

Turkey Hill School Drama Club Performs Quarantine Virtual Show

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News  Comments Off on Turkey Hill School Drama Club Performs Quarantine Virtual Show
Jul 162020
 

The 5th and 6th-grade actors from Turkey Hill School Drama Club practiced three times a week in May for their live virtual show, “Ten Ways to Survive Life in a Quarantine” by Don Zolidis, directed by Deborah Sansone

On Saturday, June 27 at 7 p.m. the Turkey Hill School Drama Club performed, “10 Ways to Survive a Life in Quarantine” by Don Zolidis. The live show was performed on a zoom webinar in front of an audience of more than 100 viewers from around the country!

Actors included 12 Turkey Hill School 5th and 6th graders who practiced for more than a month. According to Director Deborah Sansone, the actors took to the virtual stage very easily.

“They are already comfortable with the format of Zoom and they easily converted their stage knowledge to the new format,” Sansone said, “We had to use chat features to cue each other. They learned to work through technical difficulties and practiced improv in case something unexpected happened during the live performance.”

Sansone said soon the actors were sending encouragement and pats on the back through the chat function on Zoom.

The THS Drama Club is supported by the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation.

Eva and Caryn co-hosted the show.

Following is a message from Orange Native, Amity Grad, Connor Deane:

Each year, Broadway Method Academy has the privilege of hosting the Stephen Sondheim Awards at the Shubert Theatre of New Haven. The award program recognizes excellence in high school musical theater across Connecticut and Rhode Island. It’s one of our most treasured events of the year.
Unfortunately, because of COVID-19, the gala will not happen in person this year. Likewise, so many talented young students did not get a chance to perform their high school musical. Instead, BMA is proud to present a virtual celebration with the participating schools presented by the Shubert Theatre of New Haven, the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation, and the Frederick A. DeLuca Foundation.
Monday, June 1, 2020
7 p.m. 
With special appearances from Christy Altomare (Anastasia, Carrie, Mamma Mia!), Carolee Carmello (Hello Dolly!, The Addams Family, Parade), Samantha Pauly (BMA’s Evita, Six on Broadway) and more, the evening will feature a virtual opening number performed by students of all the participating schools, as well as a Best Actor and Best Actress medley!
Help us show support for these students by tuning in!
(Views can tune in on our Facebook & Youtube channels, or on our website!)

Amity residents are no doubt familiar with Judy Primavera and her husband Fred Hulley and their generous non-stop contribution to the arts through the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation [founded in memory of their late daughter Jamie].

The tri-towns are not the only area to benefit from educational grants from the JHAF. It will be sponsoring the Sondheim Awards (which Orange native Connor Deane began after the CT High School Musical Awards folded).

In December, The JHAF helped teacher Jessica Sharpe from Prendergast School in Ansonia bring Whole-Body Math to perform at her school.

The workshop was entitled Matica Arts Whole-Body Math. It was for grades k-1 to learn math skills through body movement and using objects.
Here are photos for a look back to happier times with the help of Jamie A Hulley Arts Foundation.
