SENIOR VOCAL student Iliana Taormina remembers her two years of performing in the High School for Creative and Performing Arts' spring musical as "just so magical."
Senior vocal student Zuri Reed describes the annual CAPA musical as "the big time of year for everyone to come together."
Last year, the 709-member student body didn't get the chance to bond because there weren't enough funds to produce a show. This week, CAPA's Home and School Association said it's $6,100 shy of attaining its short-term $20,000 goal, which would bring back the spring musical.
The musical is budgeted at $40,000, but the remaining funds would be raised through ticket and playbill-ad sales, said Terrilyn McCormick, vice president of CAPA's HSA, which wants to raise the remaining amount by tomorrow.
