Drama Club Offering Spring Musical Online
RANDOLPH — It’s been almost 365 days since the lights went out on stages across the country due to COVID-19, and Randolph Central School is no exception.
The school’s spring musical had to be canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
It’s now time to bring the lights back up in the historic auditorium on the hill and, after almost a year of having an empty stage, the Randolph Central School Drama Club is scheduled to present its virtual showing of Sister Act.
The show will be available to watch online between Friday, March 5, and Saturday, March 6. General admission tickets cost $10. With each ticket, viewers will receive an access code to watch the production online. There’s also an opportunity to make a donation in support of the RCS drama club — all donations include a general admission ticket. Visit randolphcsd.org or the school’s Facebook page for a link to purchase a ticket.
The show stars Alexis Shellenbarger as Deloris Van Cartier, an aspiring lounge singer forced to go into hiding at a convent. Along with Miranda Waterman as Mother Superior, Gannon Kenyon as Eddie Souther and an ensemble cast, the audience will be treated to two and a half hours of performance.
Regarding the decision to film the show, RCS Drama Club Director Andrew Garvey noted he wanted to find a way for students to be able to get back to the stage safely so they could share their production with the community. A virtual show made the most sense.
“Our kids worked hard this year to bring the show to you–right in your living room. Not only is it important to continue the time-honored RCS tradition of putting on shows for our community, but after the difficulties we’ve faced in the past year, our kids deserve the opportunity to do something fun,” Garvey said. “We truly appreciate your support as we try something a little different this year and hope you enjoy the long-awaited production of Sister Act!”
