I am so sad we are not able to take these shows to compete. Cancelling is a necessary step, but that doesn't make it any less painful.
You have all worked so hard, poured your souls into these pieces, and you deserve to have see them through to completion and share your art with an audience. To that end, I have spoke with the administration today about potential options for moving forward. Because of the unknown nature of when we will be back in school, we cannot commit to anything now, but know that I will make that happen, one way or another.
As per school directives, we will NOT be meeting on Monday. As of now, all activities are cancelled through March 30. Once we know more, we can figure out the details of our plan. We are not done.
I can only imagine how hard this moment is for you. It's hard for me, but know that you are strong. We are stronger than this moment. The journey is not over, just on pause. We will continue to make art, and we will share it when we're ready.
Love to you all. Stay healthy and memorize your lines!
It is with great sadness I share that IHSA has cancelled all Winter State Tournaments which includes CP/GI.
Ms. Doering, Jamie and I have such great respect and love for you and the work you have put into these shows. We will talk with administration tomorrow to begin discussions about how and where we can share these two beautiful pieces as finished products.
For now, we will cancel rehearsal Friday. Let us plan on full cast and crew on Monday to reconnect and hopefully have more information about how we hope to proceed.
With love and admiration,
