CHARLOTTE, N.C. — School activities were abruptly cut short for all students this year, a tough thing for many kids to accept. Students at Providence High School spent months working on a production of “Mary Poppins,” but like so many other things, it was postponed because of coronavirus.
But one student found a way to still share part of the show.
The cast of “Mary Poppins” was all ready for their opening act when schools in the state were closed, so like many others, they went virtual.
The show must go on, even in a pandemic.
“We were just about to start the show and it was a really big shock that it was going to be postponed,” says Erik Calugar, a senior at Providence High School.
After months of preparing, the cast of "Mary Poppins" finally made it to the final dress rehearsal, only to find out then they wouldn't be able to perform in front of a live audience.
