HOW TO KEEP A PERFORMING ARTS TRADITION ALIVE IN A YEAR OF COVID RESTRICTIONS?

Here’s a glimpse into our steps towards producing a virtual musical:

The logistics of keeping groups separate through transport and filming sessions. The intense preparation of audio-visual technology, of dance moves, of costuming, of drama and creative staging decisions. The self control of not bursting into song while dancing on stage (live choir restrictions). The satisfaction of collaborating on a really special event. The results – a DVD keepsake for families and the community.
