MEGA STAGE TUBE: Trumbull Update- Fight Continues to Restore Original RENT Dates
The drama surrounding Trumbull High School's impending production of Rent continues, as administators recetly committed to moving the show forward on its home turf. Now the question is whether the students will perform the show at their school (on a delayed schedule), or on their previously announced run dates at Goodspeed Opera House. If the production were to go on at the high school, participating students would be unable to attend their previously planned choir trip to England.
The musical had been halted by school administrators at the end of last month, when first-year principal Marc Guarino and the school board decided to cancel the Trumbull High Thespian Society's planned production of Jonathan Larson's hit rock opera.
UPDATE: BroadwayWorld has learned that The Board of Education meeting in Trumbull, originally scheduled for Tuesday night, was held last night, affording students and parents the opportunity to address their concerns about the new promulgated dates for RENT in Trumbull and the many conflicts that result. While Principal Guarino was present at the meeting, he did not speak publicly and declined to make any comment to the two television stations there. Here are links to their reports.
