WEST ORANGE, NJ — West Orange High School’s third annual Broadway Night did not disappoint, as the Glee Choir played to a full while and also raised more than $1300 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.

Musical director John Hellyer established Broadway Night three years ago to provide opportunities for Glee Choir members to perform Broadway music and develop their knowledge of the genre. Their love for the songs was evident and spanned several decades and styles. 

The evening was another example of the support that the students show toward one another and how they continue to bring the community together.
