Performing Arts in Action

Middle and Upper School thespians explore connection, communication and identity in Bridges, a series of play readings

Middle and Upper School's talented artists are collaborating this Fall to perform Bridges, a collection of powerful Readings centered on communication, connection, and identity.  These themes are highly relevant to adolescents and young adults and certainly resonate during this pandemic as we all try to understand how meaningfully to communicate and connect. 

The success of the first performance, live streamed on October 16, is a testament to the students' nimbleness and perseverance as they embraced the challenge and opportunity posed by the new format and safety protocols.  We invite you to watch the Middle School and Upper School Readings One and to enjoy the live streamed Bridges' Reading Two on Friday, November 6, 7:00-9:00 p.m., and Reading Three on Friday, November 20, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
