The junior high production runs from January through February. The senior high musical runs from March to May. Production and audition information is posted on the Drama bulletin board across from the Great Hall.

BSM Junior High Drama Presents
A Ten Minute Play Festival
Congratulations to the junior high cast and crew who helped create this entertaining show!
A Message from the Director - Anna Hickey Fotis
Dear Friends of BSM Drama,
I have always been a silver linings person. My whole life I’ve been able to find that little glimmer of light in the darkness. While the COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be one of the darkest times of almost everyone’s lives, my silver lining is still there in the form of our theatre students. When we sat down to plan this year, we knew our usual musical couldn’t be quite the same. I knew I wanted to provide a positive, safe experience for our students that withheld as little as possible from their theatre education. So we settled on our Ten Minute Play Festival, allowing our students to shine in a new way, learning skills in short-form theatre, dance, and filming. In a world turned upside-down, I am amazed at and grateful for the ability of our students to use their creativity in new ways. They have taken this new experience and made it their own. I have watched all of our participants grow in confidence, show pride in their work, and showcase their individual talents in a way a normal musical would not have space for. While I can’t wait to watch them perform in front of an audience again, I feel so blessed to watch them create in a brand new way that they wouldn’t have been able to experience at any other time. A silver lining indeed.
