Newtown High School students have been busy rehearsing for their upcoming musical, a special School Edition of Les Miserables.
After school on March 1, students were on stage singing as Director Jane Matson and Co-Musical Director Anna DeMasi listened. Ms DeMasi played a piano as Ms Matson interacted directing the students.
Just a few days later, on that same newly renovated NHS stage, Todd Ingersoll, a Newtown resident and president and CEO of Ingersoll Automotive, met with Ms Matson, Producer Janice Gabriel, and NHS Interim Principal David Roach to present a $7,500 donation from Ingersoll Auto of Danbury to help underwrite the production.
Ms Matson said the money will be used to generally support the program.
This was the sixth time Ingersoll Auto of Danbury has donated funds to NHS productions, and Ms Matson said every year the money “makes it possible for us to put on the musical.”
The production will be staged March 22, 23, and 24 at 7 pm, and 2 pm performances will be held March 24 and March 25. Tickets for the production became available in February, and they can be purchased ahead of time online at nhsc.booktix.com. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.
