Here is a message from the show's director, Eric Larivee:
"Hello everyone! I am in the process of creating a wonderful weekend of concerts with over 100 of my incredibly talented students, guest artists, dancers, singers, etc. This will be a celebration honoring the 90th birthday of Judy. It truly is going to be something special. None other than the brilliant Mister John Fricke will be coming to my school for an entire week to work with these gifted high
school students with lectures, seminars, coachings, etc. Total immersion in Judy Garland with John Fricke for 135 students. I feel so blessed to be able to open this door into genius for them and to carry her message of artistic excellence to a new generation of young artists. PLEASE help us spread the word in any way! I am attaching our flier. COME ON DOWN TO HARTFORD this September for a JUDY LOVEFEST!!!"
Everybody at The Judy Garland Experience wish Eric, John Fricke, the students, the tech and costume crews, and all other participants, the very best with this endeavor. Nobody is more deserving of this type of honor than Judy. And with people as passionate as Eric, and as talented and knowledgeable as John Fricke involved, it's bound to be a rewarding experience for all.
