|#THSNYC15 students and chaperones with Wired Magazine's Katie McNally|
The 2015 Trenton Marketing NYC Trip marked the fourth year THS Business and Theater students have traveled to New York City. It was another remarkable trip.
Students followed our busiest 3 Day Itinerary yet and did so with an exceptional attitude. Highlights of the trip included Broadway Workshops, a visit with Wired Magazine Event Coordinator Katie McNally, and a stop to see Matilda on Broadway. And of course, students enjoyed shopping at Macy’s, in Chinatown and in Times Square.

Our first day included a tour of Madison Square Garden and Grand Central Station. Participants then chose between two Broadway Workshops: Meet the Actor or a Broadway Improv Workshop. The day ended with a stop at Top of the Rock for a scenic view of the city.

Meet the Actor attendees were treated to a Broadway Talk with Matilda understudy Sean Montgomery, who stepped in to play Ms. Agatha Trunchbull in our Saturday matinee show. The Improv Group was a performance based session which saw students and chaperones roll their sleeves up and participate in a number of Improvisational exercises.
Day 2 was a journey to Lower Manhattan to see 2009 THS Graduate Katie McNally at Wired Magazine. Wired (Conde Naste) is located at One World Trade Center. Ms. McNally spoke with students about the day to day operations at Wired, marketing at Wired Magazine and her unique journey to Wired New York. Attendees finished up the day Downtown with a stop at the 9/11 Memorial and the newly opened 9/11 Museum.
The last day saw students tour the historic Macy’s Department store in Midtown. Macy’s New York is the largest retail store in the world and is considered to be a cutting edge marketer. This year’s tour took place amidst Flower Week, Macy’s second biggest annual promotional event. Saturday wrapped up with a matinee of 4 Time Tony Award winning Matilda The Musical.
