Once on This Island: Where do we go from here?
Hello everyone! If given the opportunity, I want to put SOMETHING together when we return. Mr. Geygan said if we return as planned, we can do show as planned. It might not be as BIG a production, but we WILL try to perform. For that to happen, I need some dedication and a lot of work on your part.
Please take some time to listen to these songs. I REALLY need everyone to know the VOCALS (even if its everyone on the melody) and WORDS (the songs tell the story!) if we have any chance of putting on a performance....sing it in your car, in your room, at the dinner table! Anyone with dialogue...you need to be OFF book when we return. Get together on your own if you need to to run lines and rehearse...FaceTime, etc...any way you can rehearse, do it!
We CANNOT return to the building for anything organized until April 14. Plan of rehearsing EVERYDAY after school until 5:30 the week we get back! Killer Sunday and tech week still stand!
You can click on each link below and it includes the ENTIRE vocal score. I will also be posting some simple DANCE videos to fill in a few places at the end of the show. Make sure to review the ones we already know (if you were absent one of the days we learned choreo...learn it now!). We will NOT have time to teach any of those songs again. So if you don't know it when we return, you are not in that song.
Use the Original Broadway Cast recording...not revival. That will help us when we add the orchestra.
Below is a Table of Contents so you know which songs are in which section. (it would only create a PDF 18 pages at a time).Vocal Score is in 6 parts/PDF files.
You guys, let's try our best to make this happen. I truly believe we can do it!...but a lot of that depends on you!
Any updates will be posted HERE, on REMIND 101 and via choir Instagram!
Spread the word.
