    Saint Joe’s Prep held its Eighth Annual Night of Scenes this year. Night of Scenes was created so that all Prep students can have the “ultimate prep experience”. I was a part of Night of Scenes last year as well, and it was such high point of my year that I was very excited to go and do it again. Night of Scenes is a bunch of different comedic skits performed by prep students along with girls from various different high schools in the area. These skits are usually written, and all are directed by, alumni of Saint Joe’s Prep or current students. Some scenes however, are from Saturday Night Live and Crazy Ex Girlfriend while others can be musical numbers. This year the show opened with the song “The Lullaby of Broadway” from 42nd Street and ended with “Summer Nights” from Grease. READ MORE »»
