CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — For the first time, Carmel High School students introduced a “Hope for the Holidays” show to the community.
At the Carmel Gazebo stage, the students entertained theater-goers and raised money to help kids at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
The event was important for the students who have a love for putting on a show.
“It means everything,” said Sarah Wolff, the organizer and a Carmel High School teacher. “It’s an opportunity for our students to have a live event and showcase their talents. Our students on our leadership team that fundraise for Riley hospital to be able to have an opportunity to actually do something during this.”
Wolff, an educator for more than two decades and one of the leaders behind the Carmel Dance Marathon, says the performance is also a way to give people a good show from the safety of their own homes.
“The program will have 10 different acts, but attendees will be limited to parents of the actors only,” she said Wednesday prior to the event.
Students emceed the show that included singing and dance performances.
Carmel Dance Marathon will post pieces of the performance on its Instagram page.
