For the second consecutive year, West Babylon High School junior Alexa Lucchesse was selected to perform with Camp Broadway Kids at Carnegie Hall. As part of the cast, Alexa was one of 60 students featured at the New York Pops 31st Birthday Gala on April 28, and had the opportunity to perform alongside Broadway star Andrea Martin to celebrate the hit-making careers of composer, lyricist and arranger Marc Shaiman and director, lyricist and writer Scott Wittman.

As a member of the cast, Alexa performed Trey Parker’s and Shaiman’s “Blame Canada,” from the film “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut,” which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song in 1999. Under the baton of New York Pops director Steven Reineke, the concert also featured Christian Borle, Jane Krakowski, Patti LuPone, Katherine McPhee and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

Alexa was selected from a national audition of more than 500 amateur performers between the ages of 12-16. The Camp Broadway Kids participated in a three-day rehearsal that included master classes in vocal performance, dancing and acting under artistic director Tony Parise, whose credits include “Me and My Girl” and “42nd Street.”    

The district congratulates Alexa on this accomplishment.
