About 2020 Hindsight

We are proud to present "2020 Hindsight," a virtual musical event designed to benefit and celebrate the CHS All-School Musical. 

In this original and entertaining screenplay, we find CHS theatre students stuck in the pandemic,  wishing they could be back on stage -- and reminiscing about previous shows performed at CHS.   Brought to you by the award-winning direction team that you all know and love, this project was professionally filmed using covid-safe practices outside, in small groups inside, and virtually.  It is sure to warm your heart and help you look forward to happier times.  Suitable for all ages.


We enjoyed spending time connecting to former CHS musical cast members over Zoom, and hearing about their lives and careers since performing on the CHS Stage!

This production would not be possible without the support and vision 

of our amazing directors and production team -- who insisted that the show must, indeed, go on; 

 and to our school leadership and employees, and dedicated show parents, 

who went above and beyond to help make this happen.
