FROM BBC: At last week’s Tony Awards in New York City, the prestigious ‘Excellence in Theatre Education Award’ went to a drama teacher from Florida called Melody Herzfeld. Melody works at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. On February 14th, 2018, a gunman entered the school and shot dead 17 people. Melody shielded many of her students and used music as part of her work to heal the trauma of those who survived. Colm Flynn went to meet her.
