This past weekend, thousands of theater fans and students packed the La Salle College High School auditorium for a weekend of sold out, standing room only performances of the 2014 Spring Musical, the Tony Award winning, 42nd Street.

This year's production incorporated the combined talents of over 130 students from La Salle College High School and surrounding area girl's high schools, and delivered on every level - from the opening curtain to the final bows.

From the high energy tap numbers which incorporated the original Broadway choreography; to one of the most demanding vocal and orchestral arrangements; to the costuming which captured the glory days of the "MGM Musical"; and a set that complimented it all, 42nd Street amazed and entertained audiences with a weekend of performances worthy of the original Broadway production.

The production featured junior Vito Scutti (Julian Marsh) and sophomore Joe Mele (Billy Lawler) in the lead roles along with a cast of over 100 La Salle students and 40 girls from surrounding high schools. The 28-man orchestra was comprised entirely of La Salle students and conducted by senior Tom McGeehan.

Stage Manager Charles Donnelly '14, along with a stage crew of more than 25 students, successfully maneuvered a number of complicated sets, which were complimented by amazing lighting that was designed and managed by senior Jordan Petrellis. Many of the performers had as many as six costume changes and the choreography was worthy of a Broadway show.
