Broadway Night is coming back to RHS tomorrow night, March 14 at 7 pm in the high school auditorium. Admission is $5.00.
An annual performance, Broadway Night consists of the Music Department’s students coming together to perform musical selections from two musicals. Last year the musicals were Jekyll and Hyde and Chicago, and this year the two musicals are Miss Saigon and Wicked.
The work put into Broadway Night is strenuous and difficult. The chorus has to learn songs for it and the band learns pieces from the musicals to perform. Chorus teacher Ms. Jennifer Hartnett explained that it takes hours. Band Director, Mr. Harden, agreed that it takes “hours and hours and hours” to get ready. However, he says it will definitely be a good production.
Ms. Hartnett is definitely excited for the concert. She said, “The show should not be missed.” She explained that the reason for choosing the musicals, Miss Saigon and Wicked is they are “good shows for students to be exposed to.”
Senior Kayla Frazer, a chorus and band member, says Broadway Night is “a fun experience” and “a pleasure to do every year.”
Tickets are available at the door on Friday night, so don’t miss out!
