Spotlight Players Thank Community For Fundraiser Support


Share post:

The Spotlight Players and Spotlight Players Parents Association have spent the past two weeks showering the town with plastic pink flamingos to raise funds for the high school theater organization.

Because many of the flockings were done under cover of darkness, you most likely never saw the hard-working team of adults and students as they flew flocks from location to location. Dedicated volunteers Andrea Anderson, Jim Azarowicz, Aidan Azarowicz, Emma DePaul, Joshua Haze, Kerri Egan, Leah Egan, Olivia Egan, Maryellen McHugh, Jack McHugh, Jimmy McHugh, Michael McHugh, Kristin Shea, Maura Shea, Beth Shorten, James Shorten and Steve Shorten set up creative displays mostly on lawns, but the imaginative flocks ended up in some interesting places as well. (You can check out photos of most of their flocking on their Facebook page.)

Thanks to the support of the community, the organization had enough funds to provide scholarships to four seniors this year: Jack McHugh, Jimmy McHugh, Maddie Suk and Oliva Tedesco. These talented students were recognized on Wednesday, June 8, at the International Thespian Society Inductions.

If you were flocked (or even if you weren’t) and you happen to find a stray flamingo or flamingo “legs,” please reach out to the group via their Facebook page. They had a couple of birds go “missing” and noticed that some of them had “leg issues,” so any help that the town can provide is greatly appreciated.

The flock will be back again next spring. The Spotlight Players will be back on the VHS stage this fall with a new production under the direction of Steven Munoz.
