Quarantine collaboration

if the video embedded above does not play, please use this link

Over forty Middle School musical theater fans did not have the opportunity to perform live this spring, so Gordon’s performing arts staff, along with Trinity Rep company member Rachael Warren and film editor Kristen Oberoi, created this brief "fan video" based on the musical “Working” to highlight the hard work of Gordon’s talented students. 

Students were coached online with readings from Studs Terkel’s famous book, learned the opening song written by Stephen Schwartz based on a poem by Walt Whitman, and then filmed themselves individually with a backing track. 

In the process, this team proved, once again, that the core of what theater does is build community.
