Executive Director Jackie Vanderbeck explains, "Sing For Your Seniors' Broadway Sessions bring the essence of a particular show to a community of people that would otherwise not get the opportunity to experience the wonderment and thrill of Broadway because of their physical health or financial need."
Performers included Nathan Lucrezio (Cinderella, A Chorus Line), Michael Callahan (Cinderella, Elon University '13), Cody Davis (Cinderella, White Christmas), Tessa Grady (Cinderella, Annie), with Mason Griffin on piano..
