Students are learning their lines and blocking for their annual school musicals.

In the Allentown School District, the kids do double duty -- they also perform a sample of their musicals in a special celebration called the High Notes Gala on March 23.

The gala is a way for the business community to pump funding into the district's theater program.

New this year: a ballroom dance component. Irene Blough is here to talk about the ballroom dancing competition and the gala.
