On December 21, Stamford High School’s drama department held their annual Knight of Cabaret show, which featured Stamford Public School students and alumni, to raise funds for the Stamford High drama club.
Drama advisor and Stamford High alum Tommy DeSalvo has been running this fundraising event for 7 years.
There was a wide range of acts, such as singers, guitarists, pianists, and dancers. “I think it went great, I actually got an email from the person who organized it, and he said that it was the highest money count that we’ve ever made.” said Lucy Santora, one of the acts who performed “Fever” by Peggy Lee.
Stamford High student Mason Locker also performed an admirable piece singing “Out There” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. “[We raised] $6,000 total, $5,000 on ticket sales, and we also held a silent auction where we raised another $1,000.” said Locker.
This show was a memorable experience and I definitely recommend seeing it next year!
