Princess Fiona in the time of corona

Princess Fiona in the time of corona

As a college student who has returned from her musical theater major in New York for social distancing and remote classes, I needed a creative outlet. This is a parody of 'I Know It's Today' from Shrek the musical, where Princess Fiona waits in a tower for a prince to break her curse, social distancing for years. Now, we are each locked in our home and adapting to this temporary normal. We're scared and frustrated. And so we sing. We smile through it and find ways to make this time meaningful.

I believe that theatre, like a good meal, should be savored. We often zoom from activity to activity, and theatre encourages us to slow down and to be present instead. We come together to celebrate life and consider how to heal this fractured world by sharing the amalgam of our experiences and the inherited experiences of our predecessors that make each of us who we are. In my work, I honor the individual in order for us to collaborate and uncover the truth about this human experience we share. sydneyweiser.com
