A talented cast of Benjamin singers, dancers and instrumentalists entertained a rapt audience in Benjamin Hall during the 21st annual Variety Show. This year’s theme, Spirit of America, took audiences on a musical journey from the days of Early America, through the 50’s, to present day. Each era showcased various musical acts from that period. Audiences heard everything from Neil Diamond to Etta James, Bob Dylan, and Darius Rucker.
The January 14 matinee and evening audiences enjoyed traveling through time with music and dance, framed by background information about each time period displayed on the theatre’s side screens. The show included captivating performances by the middle and upper school dance teams, the upper school strings ensemble, the drama club and PFP.
Variety Show guests also heard numbers by alumnae Jessica Armstrong ‘14, Jill Nicklaus ‘89, Rachel Rudner ‘04 and Dr. Andrew Moffitt ‘86. A beautiful display of artwork created by lower, middle and upper school visual art students was showcased in the lobby of Benjamin Hall.
Congratulations to Variety Show Chairs Jane Beam, Tona Krul, consultant Sherie Katz ‘83, artistic director Sara Salivar and the entire cast and crew!
