Talented Teens Take the Stage


     The Greater Latrobe Drama Club’s cabaret is a unique fundraiser that is sponsored by the drama club boosters that raises money for the spring musical, and also gives students the opportunity to choose a song and perform it in their own direction.

“I think that the cabaret went pretty well, I would say that it gave students a good opportunity to show their singing abilities and overall it was a great experience not only for the singers but the audience perceived it quite well,” said Senior Nathen Sushura. 

Arranged by senior Jiannia Kaczmarkiewicz, this year’s cabaret was a huge success. In total fifteen students participated and showcased their talents.

“Being one of the top fundraiser for the Drama club, I feel that this years Cabaret event went very well. The student participation was great and everyone truly did such a wonderful job with their performances. We had a number of students who sang songs of very familiar artist like Taylor Swift, Queen, Miley Cyrus, etc. The event had a really good turnout and I would say it was an overall success,” said Kacxmarkiewicz. 

 Of the acts in the show some students sang solos and some opted to sing in a small group. One student, junior, Even Frescura chose not only to sing for the audience but also to show off his trombone skills.

The cabaret is unique in the sense that students play to their strengths. The show has no set style or song requirements so students sing what they know suits their voices and character. 

Students prepared for weeks leading up to the cabaret. 

“Everyone in my group individually found music and learned their notes and rhythms. We got together as often as possible. We all had really busy schedules so we did what we could,” said Sophomore Elise Ruggery

Come show time all the hard work pays off when the singers cut off their last note, leaving no question if the time put in was a waste because students could take the time they still had in the spotlight to soak in the praise and bask in their accomplishments.
