KILLINGLY — Donna LaHaie of Putnam and Valerie Hauptman of Colchester will be appearing at the upcoming Broadway Live Productions “Voices in Concert with The New England Jazz Ensemble” at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on March 30 at Killingly High School.
Tickets are $18 for the 7:30 p.m. performance and $16 for matinee; and are now available online at or at Killingly High School and WINY in Putnam.
The concert is being produced to benefit both Killingly High School’s Music and Drama programs as well as the Quinebaug Valley Community College Foundation. Music from Broadway, Big Band and jazz will be featured with local and regional vocalists including LaHaie and Hauptman. Donna and Val have performed together for Broadway Live produced events including last April’s “The Conncert” that was produced to support the Hale YMCA Youth and Family Center.
LaHaie, a 1982 graduate of Killingly High School and a QVCC student, has been performing and singing throughout the years as a standout performer. “It was just 38 years ago when I made my debut as “Sandy” in the musical Grease at Killingly High School,” she said. “My involvement with musical theater, chorus and the Big Red Marching Band provided me some of the most cherished memories of my high school years; and I am truly honored to be part of this benefit as a way to give back to where it all started for me.”  Hauptman has appeared in: DIVAS in Concert, Broadway Live Christmas as well as The Conncert, last April. “I am so excited to be working with the New England Jazz Ensemble alongside the incredibly talented group of vocalists for this worthwhile cause,” she said. “Having the opportunity to perform these classic songs in such a professional setting is a very humbling experience for me.”
Broadway Live Productions creator and Director David T. Panteleakos said: “We are so fortunate to have both Donna and Val return to the stage for this exciting event. This concert is all about the power of music and education; and I am so excited to be able to bring together the 24-piece New England Jazz Ensemble with some of the most talented vocalists I have worked with over the years.”
