RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph Township’s Senior Center was filled with song and smiles on Tuesday March 2, when Randolph Middle School students from the upcoming production of “Oliver!” sang for a group of smiling Senior Citizens.
After being introduced by Richard Sackerman, the RMS middle school musical director, twenty-five students sang a few selected pieces from the production "Oliver". Familiar Broadway songs such as "Food Glorious Food", and "Consider Yourself " were sang with enthusiasm and talent by the cast while the audience enjoyed some refreshments.
After the performance, a few seniors had wonderful things to say about the show. Barbara Anderson, one leaders of the senior group, said, “It’s good for the kids and it’s good for the seniors.” We all plan to go to the show as well, it is so wonderful of them to provide transportation for us.”
Another woman called out, “Imhoff always gives us good stuff, ” (referring to the district Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts.)
Elena Rossetti, a Randolph Middle School seventh grader, expressed how cute it was when one woman said, “ You guys should play Canasta with us.”
It was a nice experience for all. Sackerman said, “We are always happy to perform for the seniors as they leave a great impression on our kids.”
