The arts department has decided not to do a musical this fall, instead, a cabaret. The usual fall musical will now be a collection of music, dance, and acting all put together into one show. Only 5 years ago the school began putting in a fall production, now they are trying something even more different and exciting.

The school’s drama teacher Dana Hoagland thought that this would be something fun and exciting for everyone. Change always has the potential to be really scary, but hopefully this year’s cabaret will be great.

“We think that the cabaret can maximize the showcase on the students. We are trying to keep what we love but make it more livable,” Hoagland said.

There is only one music teacher and one drama teacher, so this year they are trying to scale back. When they finish the fall musical, there is very little down time before the cast and crew are up and running for the next one. It is a very hectic and crazy situation so they are trying something new this year to see if it is easier for everyone. The musical theater block might stay a cabaret, it might go back to being a musical or it may morph into something else.

Marissa Wilson (9) , one of the actresses in the upcoming Fall Cabaret is happy with this new change.

“I’m very excited to see all my musical friends again, and to have theater as a block,” Wilson said.

Musical Theater can bring many lives together and bring special memories into people lives. The theater community has touched the lives of Marissa and many others.

Another Bishop Kelley student Keeley O’Leary(9)  is excited to see what comes next.

“I know they are going to do something amazing, they always do,” O’Leary said.

Lots of students were buzzing on the topic of a cabaret instead of a musical. Now that everyone is used to the idea many people are very excited to go see the show and have a look into what the actors have in store for us.

This year’s Fall Cabaret is bound to be great because of all the amazingly dedicated cast and crew members and great supporters cheering them on.
