Annual spring musical postponed until fall

Following recent postponements because of the coronavirus pandemic, the music department has rescheduled its Spring Show, “Come Alive,” for the fall.

The show, which was originally scheduled for April 23-25, will now replace the fall concert when school resumes.

Director of the Music Department Deanne Zogleman said the decision to reschedule will bring certain complications, but it will be worth it.

“Chorale has never been this far as far as knowing their music, etc,. this early in the semester so I knew we couldn’t let this show not be performed,” Zogleman said.

Graduating seniors will be allowed to come back and be in the show.

“For those of them staying in Wichita and surrounding areas, if they can put in the rehearsal time, they will get to be a part of the show. That is very important to me as they look forward to this show as much as I do each year,” Zogleman said.

Senior member of Chorale Emily Larkin said she is grateful for the opportunity to come back and still be a part of “Come Alive” after she graduates this spring.

“I really want to commend Deanne, Carole, and everyone else involved in the decision-making to move Spring Show to the fall because we had learned nearly all the music for “Come Alive,” and I’m very excited to be a part of this production,” Larkin said.

Larkin said the members of Chorale are excited for everyone to see the show in the fall.

“We are really dedicated to still putting this show on. I would hate to have to leave my senior year and not finish this out with my Chorale family,” Larkin said.

Zogleman said she is looking forward to reuniting with the Chorale family once face-to-face classes begin again.

“As always, I’m positive that we will be back in the Rehearsal Hall, singing loud for all to hear and doing what we love,” Zogleman said
