In case you haven’t heard, Drama Club has been working hard on a virtual production of the musical Now. Here. This. The show, written by Hunter Bell and Susan Blackwell, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen, is a reflection on life in our society and the experience we have with school, friends and family. The best part is that much of the scenes and numbers are open for interpretation.
Now. Not the past or the future. Here. Exactly where you are. This. Whatever it is you’re doing.
The 7th and 8th grade students spent the fall and early winter discussing the show and determining the material reflects their life and experiences during this time of remote learning. They picked a theme for each scene and filmed their interpretation of that theme. Everything was filmed and recorded remotely which makes for a different and fun virtual theater experience.
