Cramer High rising sophomore Bailey Patterson got an amazing trip to New York City recently.

Blumenthal Performing Arts requests a pair of seat filler tickets to the Tony Awards show each year. This year, the tickets Blumenthal received were tied into the Blumey Awards (Blumenthal’s High School Musical Theater Awards) program as a drawing, which is how Patterson of Belmont was chosen.

Patterson, along with a Blumenthal staff member chaperoning, set off for an action-packed weekend, which included touring the city and seeing Disney’s “Newsies” on Broadway.

But Patterson said the moment that topped them all was when her seat-filler group was put on stage during the performance of “Rocky the Musical.” Elise Esasky, Blumenthal Arts
