Stoneman Douglas High School Students From Parkland, Orlando Sang At The Tonys
The Tony Awards were last night, and the annual award ceremony celebrating stage work in New York City was graced with multiple highlights.
One of the biggest moments of the night, however, came from theatre amateurs.
During the night, Melody Herzfeld, the drama teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was honored with the Excellence in Theatre Education Award. With that, she’s also earned $10,000 to go towards the school’s theatre department.
In order to honor their teachers, students from the infamous Parkland, Florida shooting on February 14, delivered a tear-jerking rendition of “Seasons of Love” from Rent.
