Broadway Desserts changes date

Annual chorus concert rescheduled


This year’s Broadway Desserts will feature 27 preformances

Broadway Desserts, like many other activities at AHS, has been rescheduled to May 31- June 1 due to the snow.

The show is a two act Broadway revue featuring 27 songs by the AHS choral department where students sing their own selected Broadway-style songs.

“With the snow days, there just wasn’t the time needed for Production Week rehearsals,” Broadway Desserts coordinator Georgi Barker said.

With the multiple school closures, students didn’t have enough time to practice and auditorium use was becoming unsure.

“We had to respect our choral families and audience by postponing the performance in a timely manner,” Barker said.

Students were upset about having to postpone their performance, but they know it was for the better of the show and are looking forward to their new show date.

“I’m really excited to perform with my friends but also with songs that I’ve always loved from Broadway,” junior Caitlin Odem said.

Chorus teacher Jessica Irish was also disappointed about not being able to perform, but looks forward to the newly scheduled performance.

“It would have been nice to perform then, but I know my students will perform very well,” Irish said.

The chorus department and the Student Activities office worked to reschedule the show. It was difficult to find another date due to the musical and other chorus commitments such as District chorus, Festival and a performance in New York City which takes up the entire month of March.

“We hope that all ticket holders will attend the spring show, but meanwhile we appreciate their patience as we work out new details and dates for a spring show,” Barker said.
