Students perform annual BCHS spring play Thurs, Fri & Sat.
Bonnyville Centralized High School students and staff put in over 175 hours of time over the last 7 months to put on their annual musical theatre production. This year’s musical, “Anything Goes” is a script written in 1934 based on the original book by Guy Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.
Like many school musicals, “Anything Goes” is a family friendly production. Billy Crocker is a stoaway in love with heiress, Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer, Reno Sweeney, and public enemy #13, Moonface Martin, aid Billy in his quest to win Hope.
The cast of 30 students acting, backstage help of another 10, and 3 very dedicated teachers hope to delight the audience as actors take on their roles and make their way across the stage. One teacher, Nicole Baker, said this particular play was chosen because, “we had a lot of students who excel at dancing, and in this show there is a great deal of dancing. It is a play that they can just have fun with.” Students have been practicing 2-3 days a week on their lunch breaks and after school. Their efforts and hard work will be sure to guarantee the same calibre show we have come to look forward to from BCHS.
Should you be interested in attending, the play is running at the Lyle Victor Albert Centre, 7:00 pm each night from Thursday, May 4 to Saturday, May 6. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the office in BCHS. Break a leg BCHS students!!
