The Jefferson Township High School (JTHS) Chorus hosted its annual Broadway Cabaret on Friday, March 3 at 7 pm in the JTHS Cafeteria. The hosts of the event, Colton Bassett and Yves Turgeon, joked with the audience as they introduced acts from Les Miserables and Spamalot to Hamilton and Grease.
All of the songs were either played by the choral director, James Wynne, or the performers themselves, but all of the acts were performed by JTHS students or alumni, demonstrating their talents and skills with music.
While there were many acts performed by individuals and small groups, the men's and women’s ensembles prepared two pieces each as well. The men’s ensemble performed “What a Game” from Ragtime and “Gee, Officer Krupke” from West Side Story. The women’s ensemble performed “Cell Block Tango” from Chicago and “It’s a Hard Knock Life” from Annie.
The night ended with a preview of the spring musical at JTHS, The Addams Family. Connor Halma, a senior at JTHS playing the part of Gomez, sang “Happy Sad,” and the cast sang “When You’re an Addams.” Afterwards, the night of fun, songs, and laughter came to an end with everyone humming their favorite Broadway tunes on the way out.
