On March 6, Monmouth Academy chorus held its annual show, “Broadway Night.” This is a night when the students of the chorus and Choralites get together and put on a show for their community, filled with a variety of entertainment. The entire chorus sing three songs, one at the beginning of the show, one before the intermission, and one to end the show, and this year some very interesting songs were chosen. To begin the show, the chorus sang, “It’s Time To Start The Show,” a very fitting song. Before intermission, and the crowd’s favorite it seems, was “Grease Lightning,” from the musical “Grease.” The men in the chorus all dressed up in leather jackets, and had some very specific and very entertaining choreography. They tried to keep it as close to the movie as they could, but since driving a car onto stage at Cumston Hall was not a choice, they did have to do some improvising. To end the night, they sang, “Come On Everybody,” originally by Elvis Presley. During the show the Choralites also got to sing, and the song that they chose to do was, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

Other than the chorus songs, there was quite the variety of music. Songs from Broadway shows, such as “Defying Gravity,” from “Wicked” and “The Sound Of Music” from “The Sound Of Music,” were sang, as were songs from movies like, “Stepsisters’ Lament” from “Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” from “The Wizard Of Oz.” Some of the other songs that were sung were, “Bleed,” by Linkin Park, “Diary Of Jane,” by Breaking Benjamin, “Don’t Stop Believing,” by Journey, “Build Me Up Buttercup,” “Love Story,” by Taylor Swift,” and so many other great songs! With all these great songs, there was something there for just about everyone to enjoy. Also between acts there were even some small skits to entertain the crowd that some of the staff of Monmouth Academy took part in. All around it was a great show, full of wonderful entertainment, and everyone’s already excited for next year’s Broadway Night, and are already thinking about what songs they should sing.
