Tampa school notes: Get ready for kindergarten enrollment

Tampa Prep to host Nights on Broadway: Tampa Preparatory School's Theatre Arts Department will host its seventh annual Nights on Broadway event at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Smith Black Box Theater, 727 W Cass St.

Broadway veterans Caroline Daly and Curtis Holbrook will join 55 Tampa Prep students in performing songs suitable to this year's theme, "Hits and Near Misses." These include songs from certain blockbuster shows, others that fell just short, and some that never came close. The lineup features numbers from The Lion King, In the Heights, Dreamgirls, Jersey Boys, Hairspray, Memphis, Sister Act, Movin' Out and more.

For admission to the Friday show, guests may bring a donation of any amount. Saturday's tickets are $75 each for "Special Patrons" night, which includes a dessert reception with the cast and guest artists.

Proceeds benefit Tampa Prep's Visiting Artists Fund, which enables the school to bring in artists from all disciplines to educate students throughout the year. For more information, call (813) 251-8481.
