"Due to COVID19 restrictions our annual fall musical has been postponed until spring. To give our students an opportunity to shine on stage this fall we are planning something new, “Broadway Battle” A Monologue and Showtune Virtual Competition...Broadway Battle monologue and showtune student acts will be recorded early this fall and virtually adjudicated by experts in theatre and vocal performance from across the United States. "

This gits very close to home for me, not only because I am still waiting to perform in Chicago the Musical at QCT due to COVID-19 restrictions. But because as a high school theatre kid I cant imagine being a senior this year and not being able to perform in shows and be on the stage with my friends and having my family watch, a lot of the focus has been on the athletes not getting to compete but so many other students are missing out on the things they love too.
