This past Friday, March 2nd, SC Stagelighters hosted a cabaret to display “50 Years of Cavaliers”. Current students and alumni performed songs from 17 of the musicals the school has put on since SC Stagelighters founding in 1978.

Jay Vette (’09) reminisced on the performances he had in the old auditorium before he graduated. “The new auditorium was just a thought when I went here. This place is so cool,” he looked around at the massive room, trying to take it all in. In full costume, complete with a wig and 3 bandanas, Jay shared “You Give Love a Bad Name” from Back to the 80’s, and made the crowd go wild with his rockstar performance. 

Emily Alexander (’16) had the mic a total of 4 times throughout the night. She started off with “Till There Was You” from The Music Man, returned for “So in Love” from Kiss Me, Kate, and “Memory” from Cats then concluded with “Far From the Home I Love” from Fiddler on the Roof, a show she took part in her junior year. Having moved on to pursue an education in vocal performance, her love, attachment, and support for her high school theatre is not a surprise.

Current Stagelighters president, Jacob Miller (’18) hosted the night along side of current stagelighters director Mrs.Widner. Sisters Rachel (’12) and Hannah (’14) Miller performed together and Rachel also came back to the stage for a solo performance later in the show. The Miller family has been a big part of the club for years and this night helped to showcase the family aspect that has helped to keep it growing strong in both numbers and connection. Jacob closed out the night with “Alive” from Jekyll and Hyde, this years musical- April 13th, 14th, 20th, and 21st-  in which Jacob takes the stage as Mr.Edward Hyde.
