La Porte High School’s renowned musical is on hold due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision was announced this week following a meeting of La Porte High School Theatre Department staff, La Porte ISD administrators, and representative stakeholders. All are hopeful that the production can commence in the spring, should the COVID-19 pandemic subside.
The discussion table centered on the logistical hazards and complications of planning and producing a community-wide event of such magnitude while adhering to CDC protocols and protecting the health and safety of the dozens of cast and crew members, including numerous community volunteers.
Organizers, administrators, and stakeholders discussed multiple scenarios and explored several options before agreeing that postponing the production was a difficult but necessary decision.
