A Word About Singing and Playing...

In this very different year, for the first time in a very long time we could not feature a live orchestra as a part of our production due to Covid-19 protocols.  While that was extremely disappointing, we’re thankful that we had access to an excellent orchestral track.  With that comes inherent challenges, including having to stick to the tempo of the track itself, limiting our actors in some cases.

In addition, all ensemble singing was recorded separately.  Only lead solos and speaking lines were recorded live on stage.  This, too, presents an enormous challenge for our ensemble actors maintaining full character and timing while not singing live. Suffice it to say, that while this is not the ideal way to produce theatre, we persevered, and I am INCREDIBLY proud of our students. BRAVO!!


...and THANK YOU to our School Board and Administration for trusting us to produce this show safely for our students this year, most notably for our 15 members of the Class of 2021.
