ROBERT F. HALL CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL PERFORMS OFF-BROADWAY!
Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School in Caledon East, Ontario is proud to present its latest theatrical smash hit, IN THE PINK! This new musical, written by Frank Adriano and Rob Ciccotelli, explores the issue of breast cancer in a touching and often humourous way.
To commemorate the Robert F. Hall’s 20th anniversary, Hall Drama is reaching for the stars this spring. Or more like the glittering lights of Broadway in New York City. After continuing to set the bar higher and higher, performing shows in London, England in 2011 and Macerata, Italy in 2012, Hall Drama will be performing their original musical, IN THE PINK, at the New World Stages in Manhattan, just blocks away from Times Square during this year’s March Break. The plot of IN THE PINK revolves around a group of girl friends who decide to organize a concert fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. Hall Drama will be bringing over 50 students to NYC, 10 of which will be involved in the production. Local performances of IN THE PINK will be held the week before their Off-Broadway performances in March. Proceeds from the show will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Don’t miss this incredibly fun and moving show!
