The Show Must Go On

The Show Must Go On

LCA students planned to present the musical Mary Popplins play this spring semester. The play had been cast, songs and dances rehearsed, and costumes ordered. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond the cast’s control, the original dates at the end of February had to be postponed until the end of April.  By that time, restrictions related to the coronavirus delayed the musical again. Now, there are plans to present the play in June, Governor Beshear’s restrictions permitting. If the coronavirus doesn’t go away by June they will try to reschedule it for another month. Everyone in the play is very excited that all their hard work and long hours will not go to waste. They feel fortunate for having extra time to perfect the play but are sad that it is taken this long for the show to go on.

Jacob Morgan, 10, said, “At first I didn’t want to be in this play, but I’ve grown to really enjoy it. I was really looking forward to putting it on for all my family and friends, and when the coronavirus came about and then school got canceled I thought the play would be canceled indefinitely. Thank goodness they found a date in June.” Many families and friends of those who are in the play are looking forward to seeing it. Thankfully soon they will. 

The June dates also give people hope. The play going on in June means that this virus will hopefully go away by summer. Shelton Clem, 10, said “I wasn’t planning on seeing the play, but I will look forward to getting to see my friends again over the summer. I am excited to be out and about again.”
