It would replace our spring musical. I just want to do something safe (want to film outside as much as possible), and something more fun than just filming a performance on stage (I just don't find those engaging, especially without editing). A shorter musical would probably be better. We are working with the broadcasting classes, so they would handle the sound engineering. The students would record their music ahead of time, and lip sync during the filming. I got the idea from a couple of workshops at ITF this summer. And when I started looking at old clips of Godspell the movie, it got me thinking this would be a safe and fun and engaging solution for the spring musical this year. But, Godspell isn't available for streaming, and my play reading committee isn't crazy about it. Now, we are thinking of writing it ourselves. But, I'm not crazy about that idea. We have written our fall play (which we are also filming), and the process with a big group has taken so long, not to mention zoom rehearsals(which we are doing since we were hybrid til last week, and kids have to quarantine at any given moment).
I'm open to suggestions!
