WEST ORANGE, NJ - The first-ever West Orange High School Glee Club Broadway Night recently played to a full house at West Orange High School in what is sure to become an annual event.

Singers in grades 9-12 performed popular and obscure Broadway show tunes solo and in groups. Many wore T-shirts from music camps or musicals they had appeared in while in middle and high school. Accompaniment by Matt King on piano and Matthew Pacheco on drums was on point.

Glee Club Director John Hellyer donned a Burger King Crown to perform "You'll Be Back," from Hamilton and also emceed the evening. District Multimedia Technician Lauren Grof-Tisza and student Isaiah Adrien joined forces for "Suddenly Seymour."

The cheers and applause resonated throughout Tarnoff Cafeteria after every song, prompting Mr. Hellyer to note that "we'll have to rethink this for next year."
