Highlanders head to Improv Nationals!

In late February, the Canadian Improv Games NB/PEI Regional tournament was held at the Moncton Masonic Hall.  10 teams competed, including two from Bernice MacNaughton High School.  The BMHS Low Ladies placed first and won the opportunity to represent the region at the CIG National Improv Festival in Ottawa.

 

This is not only the first time a team from BMHS will compete at the National level, but it’s also the first time that a team comprised only of female performers will represent our region.

 

It takes a considerable amount of financial resources to participate in the National festival and to help offset the cost of the trip, the BMHS Improv team is holding a fundraising raffle.  There are three prize packages to be won.  Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20.  They are available from Mr. Trider in the BMHS office.  The draw is on May 30th.

All Shows start at 7:30

 

“How to Kiss a Girl” by Wade Bradford (directed by Dara Harris)

As Ken prepares for his first date with Steph, he downloads audio advice from across the centuries. His date quickly spirals out of control as he tries to simultaneously follow dating tips from a communist-fearing nationalist, a pirate, a southern belle, and a pilgrim. Can poor Ken tune out his smartphone and tune in to his own instincts and win Steph’s affection? Or is it already too late?

Jacob MacDonald, Craig Townsend, and Cas Ward

 

“The Audition” by Don Zolidis (directed by Rebecca Warren)

 A new theater teacher is bringing a production of A Chorus Line to the high school. Though the hopefuls range from shy to outrageous, and from diva-like to determined, everyone has a chance to step into the spotlight. A hilarious and heartbreaking look at the madness of auditioning and the actors who brave the process for that perfect part. 

 

 

“The Audition” is a contemporary high school classic that’s been produced over 800 times.

Things Fall (Meanwhile) by Barton Bishop (directed by Jeff Lloyd)

 

When musical prodigy Meg Meadows accidentally drops an air-conditioning unit out of her window, crushing someone on the street below, she loses the ability to hear music. Meanwhile, after Keb's brother is killed by a falling air-conditioner, Keb loses her grasp of language and begins speaking gibberish. Meanwhile, Emily Piper accidentally throws a javelin over a mountain range. Meanwhile, Herman is suddenly nailed to a tree by a flying javelin. Lives and stories collide to create a truly unique and mesmerizing tale.

 

Cast:  Owen Agnew, Sabrina Bainbridge, Emma Brown, Jordan Comeau, Sophia Hebert,

Casey McLellenen, Rylee MacKinnon, Grace Melanson, Ca Nguyen, Ryan Scholton, Makayla Steeves

BMHS STUDENTS VOLUNTEER AT LEGS FOR LITERACY

Legs for Literacy was started in 2000 by a small group of local runners and a team of enthusiastic volunteers. They saw a need for an event to raise funds for local school literacy programs. The first event included 5 and 10 km distances. Over the years the race grew to include the half marathon distance, and in 2005 the marathon distance was added. Due to amazing support from the running community and business sponsors, the race has continued to grow year after year! To date we have donated $674,000 to local literacy initiatives.​

Attached is a pic of many BMHS volunteers who helped make this a successful event
