We would like to invite you to attend the Galesburg High School Spring Musical:
Friday, April 8, 2022; 7 p.m.
Saturday, April 9, 2022; 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 10, 2022; 2 p.m.
Churchill Junior High School Auditorium
According to Scott Rasso, Director for Working, "We are doing something very special to honor the resilience of our community, the pride of the past, and the promise of the future. Our cast and crew is made up of students from grades 7-12. All of whom have been displaced at some point over the last few years, whether it was due to construction, COVID, redrawn school boundaries, or ALL of the above."
While the Fine Arts Center is still under construction at Galesburg High School, the cast will perform the musical at Churchill Junior High. Rasso spoke about having the performance at Churchill, "Next year, Churchill Junior High will be no more. Why not perform one last production at Churchill in order to pay tribute to one building that's meant a great deal to our community? At the same time, we can share the anticipation that we all have for the new facility that we will call home in the future. "
This musical will mean much more to the Galesburg community due to Rasso adding local connections to the performance. It will include video footage and images of interviews that Rasso conducted with local workers who talk about themselves, their jobs, and their place in the community.
The local vision is also shared by the students who will be peofmaring. According to Rasso, "The students are catching on that this is a bigger deal than just a typical spring musical. This production is a learning experience that extends far beyond the walls of the classroom. We are performing with a purpose. It's a chance for us to heal, to grow, and to see the bigger picture of what really matters to us - OUR COMMUNITY!"
