The 2020 Variety Show theme is....EN ROUTE! EN ROUTE is all about the journey that life takes us on. It’s about travel and a destination, about getting somewhere where you want to be, but enjoying the view on the way. EN ROUTE can refer to literal modes of transportation, like trains, planes, and cars, or can be about the journey that each person takes in their own life in self-discovery or growth. More information, including an act workshop day, will be released in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
