COVID-19 Protocol for the 2022 Show

Posted on

We are all very excited to get back to our normal lives and activities, especially the return of the Magic Moments annual production! We expect there to be a 2022 show, and information about auditions and dates should be coming out in the next few months. As part of our preparation for the return of our beloved show, the Production Team and the Board of Directors are in discussions about what COVID-19 protocols we should put in place to keep our actors, staff, and other participants safe and healthy. No decisions have been made yet about what the protocols will be. Please keep an eye on our website for additional information and announcements about our plans for a safe and fun 2022 production.

A Message from our Artistic Director

Posted on

photo of KQFor the first time in 38 years, there is no first day rehearsal for Magic Moments. This is kind of a sad day, filled with a sense of loss, or maybe nostalgia, or anger at the universe, or many other emotions.

But, it could also be a time for reflection, a time to deepen our friendships in other ways thru our MM associations. We can bring renewed energy, renewed commitment, renewed passion for what we love. We have the chance to find new ideas, songs, dances, new ways of doing what we love. We can use all of this to reinforce the idea that all of us are one and the same regardless of our various and different attribute, talents etc. and show the world that this is not just an idea but is a livable reality.

I miss you all and look forward to many more years of “United we stand, united we fall, let’s make this show the best of all! Give ‘em hell!!”

Break-a-leg,
KQ
