Passion for the arts doesn’t always pay, but for Robyn Workman, her daughter Stefanie, and their supporters, passion has finally paid off.

For years, they have discussed their dream of a permanent home for Sparkle on Stage, Inc., the youth theater group founded by Freeport native Workman years ago. In May, they moved into 195 Woodcleft Avenue and fixed it up to have an internal theater with dressing rooms and rehearsal space. 

In fact, the space will be more than just a home for Sparkle. On July 6, friends and local officials gathered at the official ribbon-cutting to christen the space the Sparkle on Stage Cultural Arts Center.

Holiday Fun on the Nautical Mile

12/18/2020

Congratulations to the Sparkle on Stage players for their fantastic performance of A Christmas Carol on Freeport’s Nautical Mile last week. Preceding the Freeport Annual Holiday Boat Parade, this  amazing cast of seven persevered, despite masks, to project their character’s emotions with only the  benefit of microphones and eyes in the cold and damp.


While the venue was rustic, the set was festive and the audience was game for a live holiday performance. Bravo to these youngsters who toiled to learn their lines and emote their meaning despite the challenges of rehearsing wearing masks. Their commitment to the project was evident.


In the end, it was somewhat like being a live audience at a radio drama from back in the day. The audience was enthusiastic, hanging on their every  word, and in fact, they joined in at the end for a round of caroling. With cookies and hot cocoa in hand,  the whole crowd emptied joyfully onto Woodcleft Canal to watch the lighted and decorated boats parade by. The entire evening was a triumph for Freeport and the intrepid holiday makers of Long Island’s south shore! Bravo!  ~  Jackie Anner Kimlingen

Local Non-Profit Lifts Spirits with Summer Fundraiser

August 13, 2020

The Sparkle on Stage players sang the songs of Mary Poppins on Freeport's Nautical Mile on August 13, 2020.  The children were expecting to perform on stage in May, but the pandemic put an end to that.  Undaunted, they continued to rehearse on Zoom and created a performance video. It wasn't the same as performing live.  Our SOS players were invited to perform as part of the Long Island Arts Council of Freeport's outdoor summer concert series.  It was an excellent opportunity for our players to experience a live audience.  A smaller cast performed the music in concert style of Mary Poppins, entertaining friends and family in a safe socially distanced venue.
