South Orangetown Central School District

The cast and crew of South Orangetown Middle School’s spring production of “Newsies” was treated to a very special Zoom session yesterday, thanks to efforts of South Orangetown parent and actor Adam Sietz.

“Students ‘met’ original Broadway cast members Kevin Carolan, Stuart Marland and Daniel Quadrino,” reports Director Jamie Fodor, who participated in the video conference, along with Assistant Director Danelle Greene and Choreographer Maggie O’Rourke. “We discussed the audition process, what it’s like to be in a Broadway show and heard fun stories. Mr. Marland told our cast and crew that the original cast was chosen because of the way they cared for and supported each other at auditions. He wanted to share this to illustrate the importance of this, no just onstage.”
