P.J. Gelinas Junior High School chorus, band and orchestra students took part in an opportunity of a lifetime when they recently attended a Broadway master class on the art and techniques of stage combat.  

The students learned from Broadway fight choreographers how stage combat works during rehearsal and in a live performance. Following this, they were engaged in a question-and-answer session with two of the ensemble members of “Beautiful: The Carol King Musical,” Nathan Scherich and Stephanie Martignetti. During the session, the group discussed myriad topics, including vocal health and the need for performers to be very conscious of keeping their instrument healthy and drinking lots of water.

Concluding the day, the group attended a performance of “Beautiful: The Carol King Musical” on Broadway.
