This coming semester, I’m looking forward to being involved with two classic musicals: Singin’ in the Rain (performed by Villanova Student Musical Theatre) and Mary Poppins (performed by the students of Upper Moreland High School)! I can’t wait to tackle both of these shows; Singin’ is a wonderful homage to classic Hollywood and makes use of a songwriting style that I’ve grown to really love in the past two years of performing in retirement communities. And Poppins, though I didn’t grow up with the film, contains so much legendary, classic music, and the students of UMHS have already been phenomenal to hear from during auditions. Both shows held auditions last week, in a flurry of activity just before a nearly 3-week break before rehearsals for both begin the first week of January, and I’m very excited to dive into both!
Singin’ will be performed February 18th – 22nd, 2020.
Poppins will be performed April 23rd – 25th, 2020.
