True Blue: Episode 2

5/29/19 – Marion, IN – The Spring Training saga continues. Just like any good act one, here’s the sequel! Subscribe to catch the entire season!

Life in Marion has become much less exciting now that the tornado sirens aren’t sounding every day. Since they’re not under water, we are finally able to go outside and use the IWU fields! We are about three-quarters of the way through the show, and with only 13 days left until we leave for tour the anticipation is palpable!

Spring Training can often feel like it goes on forever, sitting in one place for so long, but events like THE BLUE WAY can help break up the daily routine while also letting us interact directly with young aspiring Bluecoats.

This weekend, about 100 high school students from around the US will join us at Spring Training for a weekend of rehearsing and performing alongside the Bluecoats! They’ll even perform a selection of our 2019 program! It’s not too late to register for THE BLUE WAY. Students ages 14-19 can register by clicking here. Parents are welcome to join for the performance on Sunday afternoon! Check-in begins Saturday morning in Marion, IN and overnight accommodations are provided.

We’re so grateful for all of the donors who sponsored meals this week. Food for us is as much about keeping people fed, as it is for keeping our performers and staff happy. Donors who feedBLOO can sponsor a meal and have their name on the feedBLOO board in the morning. You can sponsor a meal by clicking here!
