First developed last year by chorus director and music teacher David Ranen to replace the school’s long-running Ice Cream Social and Choral Review, the show will feature the 98-member chorus performing a variety of numbers from well-known Broadway shows such as “Wicked,” “Chicago,” “Annie” and “Fiddler On The Roof.”

Admission to the event is $8 for adults and $5 for students in kindergarten through Grade 12. Children who do not yet attend school will be admitted free of charge. “It’s a fun, family-oriented show,” Ranen said.
