Saratoga Central Catholic Students Reach out to Community
Raising money to help the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center became personal for Saratoga Central Catholic School senior Ella Gurney.
|Saratoga Central Catholic senior Ella Gurney produced a musical to benefit the Children's Hospital at Albany Med.|
So she turned to the stage, organizing her classmates for a summer production of the musical “The Tangled Story of Rapunzel.” Nine students, ages 11-18, worked on all aspects of the musical from production, set design, choreography and publicity -- with a singular goal: to raise money for the Children’s Hospital.
Last summer it all came together when the Saratoga Central Catholic Players staged the show in Saratoga Springs and raised a total of $1,001.
“I am thrilled with what we made, “she enthused. “I think we were able to go above and beyond. It was definitely a success.”
