Spring Musical Fundraiser Smashing Success

New Milford High School's Spring fundraising event brings home amazing talent.

The James Africano Auditorium of New Milford High School was packed Friday for the Spring musical fundraiser, Growing Up. The fundraiser was to benefit the spring production of 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Noted alumni returned to the NMHS stage as Director Jonathan Silver ('05), Rob McClure ('00), Jessica Day ('05), Josh Dela Cruz ('07), Ryan McCann ('05), Jonell Robles ('05) and Hannah Zarate ('08) combined their talent with Maggie Lakis, Megan MacPhee, Amanda Phillips and Allison Strong to sing from the Broadway songbook songs about coming-of-age and relationships. Alexander Diaz ('03) was scheduled to appear with the ensemble cast, but at the last minute could not attend.

A special guest performance was made by Superintendent Michael Polizzi, who came to the stage and wowed the audience as he performed two songs on his acoustic guitar.

This was SO much fun! Too bad it takes so much work. I would gladly pay to see this kind of show every month. This is so much better than going to the movies. I can't wait for Putnam County Spelling Bee!
