Drama students from Parkland school take NY stage againJune 12, 2018 8:33pm

NEW YORK (AP) — The drama students from Florida's Parkland school have made another surprise stage appearance in New York.

This time it was at a fundraiser in Central Park for The Public Theater.

The benefit Monday night included a production of the 1978 Tony-nominated show, "Runaways" by the late Elizabeth Swados.

At the end of the show, the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were brought onstage. They performed a piece that was written by Swados for a screenplay of "Runaways" that never materialized.

The students appeared during Sunday's Tony Awards to sing "Seasons of Love" from "Rent." Their drama teacher, Melody Herzfeld, was honored during the show. She has been credited with protecting students during a school shooting that killed 17 people.
