“To sing again means so much. These voices are beautiful, and it’s been a hard year not being able to sing in school, and we’re just getting back into it. It feels very hopeful,” said Kimberly Murphy, who is directing the production.

The school is producing ‘The Theory of Relativity,’ a new musical by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill.

“I just love making music with other people. It’s one of my favorite things to do,” senior Julianna Day.

PRESS RELEASE

Camden Hills Regional HS presents a Spring Musical – May 7, 8, 14, 15

Mark your calendars for a live show! Spring is here, and we are moving the singing to an outdoor stage. Known for its large musical productions in the fall of each year, Camden Hills Regional HS is taking advantage of the chance to sing outside and put on a show before this year’s seniors graduate. The school is producing The Theory of Relativity, a new musical by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill. This contemporary musical explores the many aspects of human relationships and love, through solos, ensemble singing, and small vignettes. The show runs for approximately one hour and 20 min. without an intermission. The genre of the show is more like a musical revue than a traditional musical with changing scenes and costumes; therefore, it seemed the perfect fit for a musical that could be presented to an outdoor audience during COVID times.

Directed by Kimberly Murphy, with accompaniment by joani mitchell, technical direction by Tom Heath and choreography by Gretchen Henderson; a full cast of performers and tech crew are pulling together to create a unique theatrical experience.

The cast of 19 performers features nine seniors: Cynthia Allen, Kevin Bergelin, Julianna Day, Isaiah Doble, Ruben Feldman, Andi Hammond, Wesley Henderson, Nathaniel Stanley, Kate Upham. The ensemble cast is completed by George Bickham, Caleb Butler, Nora Finck, Isabella Kinney, Joshua Kohlstrom, Audrey Leavitt, Alice Moskovitz, Malaya Moores, Millie Pearse and Sam Skovran.

Oliver Worner, as the student producer, is taking on many roles including helping with plans to keep audience members socially distant, setting up an Eventbrite page for tickets, and being the coordinator of cast and tech needs. Additional techies include Elias Porter (sound), Jasper Berryman-Moore, Declan Buchanan, Katelynn Colbry, Emily Frank, and Brian Bland.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. There will be no “at-the-door” ticket sales. The show dates for the outdoor event are May 7 and 8 at 6:00 PM (with a rain date of May 9th at 2:00 PM), and May 14 and 15 at 6:00 PM (with a rain date of May 16th at 2:00 PM). Audience members will be asked to remain masked for the entire show, and keep a social distance of 6 ft. Due to COVID restrictions, seating charts with assigned spaces will be created in advance. There are also limited drive-in style tickets that will allow audience members to watch the show from the comfort of their car, and hear the music broadcast over an AM radio signal.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, April 26th. If you have ticketing questions, contact Oliver Worner at oliver.worner22@fivetowns.net

The theme of the show is about human relationships – funny, serious, loving, sad, or poignant. Parents of young children should be advised that there are mature themes and content in some of the songs.
