All rehearsals are now online and programs like Zoom and Skype are becoming the modes of communication.

"Yes it is super challenging but is that going to stop us not a chance, but you can definitely feel that all across the board from everybody with is really cool," said actor Noah Hill.

Musical Director Jodi Beach says despite uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus the cast is motivated and putting in the effort each rehearsal.

"We don't know what's going to happen and we don't want to borrow trouble from the future," said Beach. "What can we do today to stay on task. Well today we can learn our music."
