Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat


Way way back many centuries ago...

Dear cast and crew of "joseph ",

Hi there!

Couldn't help but think that this Saturday we would have been starting tech week. It kind of feels strange to have our rehearsals and stage crew jobs so abruptly stopped. So I wanted to share with you this article about a New York actress who realized how disappointed so many theatre kids were to have their shows canceled! ( Thanks to Fr Kevin, ours is just postponed !) She had kids put their songs on her Facebook page .. the girl from Haverford high was on ! and so many people are watching -Including lin Manuel Miranda, the writer, and performer of hamilton.

During this "downtime " I really want you to practice your music and choreography every day. We have no idea when we will do the show .. BUT it may be that Fr Kevin calls and says ..you will go on this weekend and it will be 3 days away .. we don't want you to forget all the work you did so far. And if you don't know it ..you are really really talented and this show will be awesome. When you sang for Fr. Kevin, it made us so very proud.

So get going ... red and yellow and.......
