â€œBecause I knew you, I have been changed for goodâ€ is a sampling of the lyrics from the digital tribute that Hinsdale Central Theatre Directors Mr. Matthew Goeke, Ms. Susie Jaffe, Mr. Christopher Kostro, Ms. Erin Lundin, and Ms. Sarah Scholz sang for the cast and crew of Seussical.
When the spring musical was cancelled due to COVID-19, student members of Hinsdale Centralâ€™s Drama Club teamed up digitally to perform one of the songs from Seussical, â€œItâ€™s Possible.â€ In response, the directors wanted to return the sentiment. The idea for the tribute came from Band Director Matt Goeke. Mr. Goeke also developed the concept and organized the logistics of recording remotely which included providing the directors with a piano breakdown of the parts to help them self-teach the music.
According to Ms. Lundin, with the tribute, the directors hoped to â€œlet our kids know that we miss them and particularly let our seniors know how much they have meant to us these past four years.â€

During this year, we may have been apart from our students and apart from our colleagues, but we stayed together!
