RANDOLPH, NJ- It was a taste of Broadway at Randolph High School on Friday Feb. 7, as RHS Choir members presented “A Night At The Tonys”, featuring the music of Broadway. The Randolph Choir Boosters Association went above and beyond in pulling off an evening of food, fun, and entertainment. 

The RHS Commons area was set up in true Cabaret Style, with round dinner tables for guests to dine at before the talented entertainment took the stage.  Donated Tricky tray items and raffles were also a big part of the evening. The two grand prizes were an I-pad mini and a $300.00 gift certificate to Broadway.com.

Jeanne Stifelman, President of the RHS Choir Booster Association offered thanks to the many individuals and groups who helped plan and carry out the event.

Stifelman said, "While the Cabaret is a fundraiser for the Choirs of Randolph High School, it has also become a special night that brings the entire community together at the high school.  The event has been consistently attended by the students' families as well as many young families and senior citizens.”

There were more than 30 local restaurants and food vendors that supported the event by donating dinner for the audience, including “platinum sponsors” Morris Tap and Grill, Skylands at Randolph and Hunan Wok.

The event also included a food drive, which was the student’s way of giving back to the community who supports them.  Guests were asked to  donate a can of non-perishable food, and by nights end they had collected more than 450 pounds of food for the Interfaith Food Pantry to support families in the community who are in need.  

Lea Sevola was the Emcee for the evening, introducing each of the performances.  She also took a turn on stage and sang her heart out.  One middle school student exclaimed,” She is just beyond amazing.” Sevola also served as the RHS Choir Council President.

A silent crowd watched in awe of the talent at RHS, as Matthew Swiss directed a perfect performance.  He elicited a chuckle from the crowd when he stated, “Never plan such a large scale event on your birthday.”

A couple of highlights of the evening, according to some students in attendance, were the A cappella version of “Bellas’ Finals” from the movie Pitch Perfect, and an always appreciated “Climb Every Mountain” from Sound of Music.

Stifelman stated “Of course, the stars of the show were the students themselves who shined brightly on stage singing the music of Broadway.   I hope that this event becomes a tradition in Randolph for many years to come."
