Spring Musical a Revue of Several Shows

Students will perform a spring musical

Despite COVID, Socastee put on a spring musical this year– a very special one to honor performers affected by COVID.

The show was a musical revue that included songs from all the shows that were on Broadway when COVID first struck last year and had to go dark. 

“Our idea is that in the end of our show, we hope to return Broadway back to the stage,” Theatre Director Ms. Farrah Beaudry said.

The show also raised money to support the Broadway Cares COVID relief fund, which is trying  bringing Broadway back to life.

It is one way of bringing hope to the community and culture of Broadway and initially help other performers thrive during these hard times,” Charity Hillegass, a senior in the show, said.

“Our musical is not just for us,” she said. “We’re also raising money to support bringing Broadway back to life.”

Unlike the “Amp Up Your Holidays” choral show, which was held outside in December, the musical took place in the auditorium. However, they could only seat at 40 percent capacity, or 249 seats. The audience sat every other row with two seats in between different parties.
