The show is still going on at least two local high schools despite the ongoing pandemic. Both Kewaunee High School and Southern Door High School filmed their productions ahead of their online debuts so audiences could enjoy them at home. Social distancing protocols were in place, which means there is a limited number of actors on stage at once and masks worn when necessary. Kewaunee High School filmed three productions this spring: The Importance of Being Earnest, Gossip: Virtual Edition, and Purple Ink. Southern Door High produced Hello My Baby! before holding a red carpet event over the weekend. Senior Brady Tooley plays the lead in the musical and says just because it was filmed does not mean the pressure was off.
Kewaunee High School’s three productions were released last week and are available on the school district’s YouTube page. You can purchase a streaming pass for Southern Door’s Hello My Baby! production online to view the musical at your convenience.
