Archbishop Stepinac H.S. – Phantom of the Opera – Nicole Heney (Christine). Operatic, high, clear and lovely.
Clarkstown South H.S. –Into the Woods – Nicole Riolo (Witch). “Stay with me,” she sang, bowing only slightly at the end of her song. Poised and controlled.
Northern Highlands H.S. – The Wedding Singer – Brittany DiNardo (Julia Sullivan). “Someday When It’s Me,” an uptempo number. Cute and clear.
Ossining H.S. –Aida – Mykaela Copeland (Aida). Fierce and forceful “Easy As A Life.”
Pleasantville H.S. – Beauty and the Beast – Kathryn Faughnan (Belle). “A Change in Me,” spectacular and flawless, loud and clear.
Saddle River Day School – Gypsy – Skylar Gottlieb (Rose). “Ev’rything’s Coming Up Roses.” Ending with a plaintive breath. Wow.
