Broomfield HS

A lot of magic happens in the large, nondescript shed behind Broomfield High School. While there are still weeks before the big event, on this Friday morning in March the shed is bustling, as parents work tirelessly to cut, paint and mount elements that will become large set pieces that will transport students to far-away places (although don’t ask about the theme because it is kept a secret until the big night). 

Given the Broadway-like production, you’d be forgiven if you thought that the parents are pitching in to help with Broomfield High’s spring musical. The work is all for the school's legendary after prom, known as JAM (Just After Midnight).

Menzel sisters

While Cara Mentzel’s sister, Idina Menzel (yes, they spell their last names differently), is known for her roles on stage and screen, it was Cara who was treated like a superstar when she returned to Foothill Elementary in Boulder, Colorado earlier this month.

The educator, turned author, came back to the school where she taught for nearly 15 years to share her and her sister’s new children’s book, “Loud Mouse”. Students and staff at the school welcomed her back warmly.
