Monticello HS Performance to Benefit Charlottesville Free Clinic

Posted: Updated:
Students in Monticello High School's spring musical are putting on a benefit performance to support the Charlottesville Free Clinic. Last year the free clinic gave out more than $3 million in prescriptions. The money raised through Saturday's performance will help pay for the medicines. 

The group has been working on their spring musical, "Urinetown" for months and is in its final week of preparation.

"It will be an amazing musical it's got a lot of dancing, people will love it," student Alex Espinosa said. "I don't think people will think it's boring, its kind of different from other musicals."

On Monday the group took a tour of the clinic to see where the money will be used.  Erica Viccelio, the clinic's executive director, says the organization is grateful to be chosen as the recipient of the donations.

"The fact that these students have been impacted and touched by our services and that they're choosing to give back in this way we're so grateful," she stated.

The show to benefit the free clinic is Saturday afternoon at Monticello High School. Tickets are paid for by donations. For show times and ticket information click here.
