MHC student musical now showing on YouTube

·1 min read

Medicine Hat College education students have released their masterpiece.

The students took to the virtual stage recently to present their showing of ‘The Show Must Go Online.’

The musical documents a drama teacher and her students, who put on a play virtually after the live, in-person showing is cancelled.

Every year education students at the college put on a musical to teach them how to organize, practice, promote and put on a production. Many arts teachers end up directing plays and musicals once they start their career, and this is a way for college students to see how it works.

“This is a good opportunity to show the community that there are still ways we can do the things we love, we just learn how to adapt to new situations. We’ve learned about time management, it’s given us confidence and strengthened our communication skills,” said student Kendra Lynn-Tripp.

The show can be viewed online at
