Cupid’s Bow — a special rehearsal

Emily Thomp­son leads the stu­dents in rehearsal

Cupid’s Bow” is a new, orig­i­nal musi­cal with book and lyrics by Emily Thomp­son and music by Richard D. Rus­sell. On Jan­u­ary 30, a spe­cial rehearsal was held by the cast mem­bers, who are all stu­dents at Cen­tral School in East Hanover New Jersey.

What made the rehearsal spe­cial was that a few dozen stu­dents vis­it­ing from China were in atten­dance. After they lis­tened to “Cupid’s Bow”, they in turn per­formed songs and other skits for the Amer­i­can students.

Cupid’s Bow” has its pre­miere Feb­ru­ary 12 at 6pm at the Cen­tral School in East Hanover, NJ.
