Rolling Stone: See Marjory Stoneman Douglas Students Sing ‘Rent’ Classic at 2018 Tony Awards

Drama students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School performed the Rent standout “Seasons of Love” at the 2018 Tony Awards to honor their theatre teacher Melody Herzfeld, who helped saved dozens of lives during the shooting at the Parkland, Florida school.

Herzfeld barricaded 65 students inside a closet within her classroom during the February 14th shooting, which killed 17 people at the school. For her actions, the Tonys awarded Herzfeld the 2018 Excellence in Theatre Education Award, an annual honor given to a K-12 theater instructor that “demonstrated monumental impact on the lives of students and who embodies the highest standards of the profession.”
