This week finds the Sound of Music cast and crew still dealing with illness. Over half of our cast has been affected and is still recuperating from a combination of Influenza A, strep and or a norovirus. Our voices are at half and our energy level less. In our interest to give the cast the best experience possible and let them have the show they deserve, we will be moving the musicale dates to April 11th-14th at the Foundry. We will be honoring any tickets sold to date and will publish exact times and provide communications around how to redeem your tickets for the performances. The good news is it takes a GREAT VILLAGE to reschedule a play on the fly! Thanks to the Foundry, the Community Band, the TAA and YSHS and District Administration for their help. We can’t wait for you to see healthy students in this show! More to come!! see pic

Dear Families, Friends and Supporters of the Fearless Theater Department: The current bug going around is taking its toll. As of this morning, 23% of our student body across McKinney and YSHS was out sick. The symptoms of this illness are a headache, fever (sometimes very high), aches, congestion and chills. There are also reported cases of strep as well. We tell you this to be on the lookout—as our numbers show, it seems to be highly contagious. The viral version also seems to run a long course—several days at the least. Because we want our students to be well and have positive experiences in their extracurriculars, Administration and the Theater Department have come to the decision to postpone the opening of THE SOUND OF MUSIC from Friday, March 8th to Sunday, March 10th at 3:30 p.m. This letter will detail our adjusted schedule and what this means for those who have purchased tickets. ADJUSTED SCHEDULE: The new schedule to see THE SOUND OF MUSIC is as follows. All shows are at the Foundry Theater, 920 Corry St. in Yellow Springs. *Sunday, March 10th – 3: 30 p.m. Thursday, March 14th – 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 15th – 8:00 p.m. Saturday March 16th – 2:00 p.m. AND 8:00 p.m. Sunday, March 17th –3:30 p.m. *We will determine Saturday afternoon if our students are well enough to perform on Sunday. A confirmation will be published to our theater webpage on Saturday by 6 p.m. FOR TICKET HOLDERS: CURTAIN WARMER: will still be held tomorrow, Friday March 8th at the Arthur Morgan House. You will be able to attend the reception and then use your ticket for any of the shows listed above. Seats will be held for each performance. Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the show to claim your reserved seat. SHOWTIX4U.COM PURCHASES: Tickets purchased online for this Friday and Saturday will be honored for the corresponding evening performance the next week. If you cannot attend at that time or need another date, please email our Theater Department Producer, Jovan Terrell at as soon as possible. An email has been sent to the musicale participants and their families with more details about scheduling. An announcement has been also posted for students in their Google Classroom. see pic
