Reston More than 200 students from South Lakes High Pyramid schools performed in "Broadway Night" last Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3-4, 2017, at the school. Staged by South Lakes High choral students, the show featured 20 different Broadway show scenes performed by students in grades 5-12. Based on the theme "Stronger Together," music selected celebrated inclusion, diversity, love, unity and strength. Among the show’s highlights were “Matilda,” “Charlie Brown,” “Shrek the Musical,” “Heathers,” “Hamilton,” “Waitress,” “West Side Story,” “The Sound of Music,” and “Newsies.” To prepare for the show, students worked with professional vocal and music coaches, theater coaches, technical theater directors, and choreographers from FCPS and community theaters on scenes from a variety of Broadway shows while learning audition technique, dance, acting, musicianship, characterization, and professionalism in the performing arts.
