As the audition period for the spring musical has ended and roles have been cast, actors have started learning choreography March 5. Apart from being excited to play the waitress Dolores, senior Carly Joseph is also excited for her fellow castmates. 

“Everybody has a specific role in the show which is nice because everybody gets an opportunity to have a moment on stage,” Joseph said. 

The musical — Working — features a compilation of interviews from different Americans talking about their jobs. Freshman Avery Cournya said she is very excited for the opening number. 

“(Working has) a really nice intro song and it tells you a lot about the story” Cournya said.

In order to stay safe from COVID-19, choreographer Julianne Mundale has had to do things a little differently than she normally would.

“I’m spacing kids out and transitioning so that everyone is obviously remaining six feet apart,” Mundale said. “It puts limitations, unfortunately, with some things that I’d maybe like to do physically.” 

The musical Working was written by multiple different composers which makes this musical very unique according to Joseph. 

“Usually musicals are written by a single composer, but this was written by five different famous composers so it’s kind of a compilation of a bunch of different styles of music,” Joseph said. 

Mundale is excited to keep teaching choreography working towards the final product. 

“(I love) the teaching of choreography and how it works with the vocals and the music,” Mundale said. “Obviously still remaining safe during COVID, but yet challenging the kids and being able to tell these really cool stories that are in the show.”
