The show must go on, as smoky conditions continue
MEDFORD, Ore —
The smoke has cancelled and affected various shows across the Rogue Valley. As The Collaborative Theater Project prepares for opening night of their musical "Lend Me A Tenor," they said they've had to overcome some obstacles as well.
The musical consists of a 15 person cast and Director of the show, Rick Robinson said many vocal performers have been affected by the smoke.
" I hear it vocally, they're gonna struggle to get through the weekend because its hard on their voices," said Robinson. "There's a reason why they cancel these outdoor shows because its difficult to ask actors to perform in it and even though we are lucky to be in this nice cool indoor building, smoke free they still have to live and work in it."
Collaborative Theater Project said they also had to relocate their "Theater In The Park" to Cascade Christian Center and the Santo Community Center in Medford due to the smoke.
If you would like to escape the smoke yourself, the musical, "Lend Me a Tenor" kicks off tonight at 7:30 pm and goes until September 16th. For times and pricing click here.
