This will be Pride’s second production amid the Covid crisis. All productions from auditions to show dates are rehearsed using Pride’s smART Protocols for art safety and then streamed live via the showtix4u website.
“A novel virus calls for a novel answer. If the show is to go on, we must be willing to forge a new path,” said director Sarah McGee. “Creating art in the challenging time of a global pandemic has required the support of both our artists and our community allies. This production is a true community event and showcases the talents of Pride’s artists (ages 7-22), tap dancers from Miss Jackie’s Studio of Dance (as the high kicking Rockettes), Jacob Patorti as a very special guest vocal director and the video skills of Castleton University video student, Luke McGee.”
