Annually, Carolina Forest’s Showcase Show Choir alternates between a trip to New York City and Disney World to compete with other schools across the country and see Broadway shows. This trip can be costly for students to pay for out-of-pocket. In order to help fund this pricey excursion, the group puts on performances in which the proceeds go towards paying for the students’ trips.

Show Choir will be performing the Broadway musical, “Newsies” in late March. Tickets are available at
