Godspell- A COVID Production!

Godspell- A COVID Production!

Mia Naman, Writer

Students from freshman to seniors have been putting in work to make this year’s musical production, Godspell, the best it can be. Despite the lack of full cast practices, the group has been able to put together a great production so far. The cast has been able to adjust from single group rehearsals to full cast rehearsals with ease. 

Due to the pandemic, the full cast was not allowed to rehearse until recently. For the past two months, the cast has been split up into three groups, A, B, and C, and have had to practice 1-2 days a week depending on what cycle it was. For example, in week one, Group A practiced Monday and Wednesday, then in week two Group B practiced Tuesday and Wednesday, and in week three Group C practiced Wednesday and Thursday. This pattern continued until last week when the full cast came to practice.

Senior Josie Lloyd said, “The musical has definitely been different this year than in years past, but I am enjoying every second of it! I love my group and the whole cast and can’t wait to see how the production turns out.” Josie, along with the rest of the cast, is making sure to enjoy every moment of the production while putting in hard work and effort every rehearsal!
