The night begins with the year’s first performance by our amazing and talented dancers. First, Katherine Desimine ’15, Teresa Scalley ’15, Katie Wolfe ’13, and Mandy Mu ’14 will be performing “In 2 Deep,” with choreography by Veronica Factory. Then, Ericia Bramwel ’16l and Tara Brooks ’14 from this semester’s Intro to Dance class show the skills they’ve picked up in the last few weeks with their own class-choreographed dance “B-B-B Baby.” Finally, Katherine, Teresa, and Katie return to the stage with the haunting “Brotsjor,” choreographed by our own Kathy Kohatsu.
This will be followed with a series of monologues by students in our theater classes and after-school theater program, including Johanna Pastoriza ’16 (“The Whale”, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Katie Wolfe (“Mary”, Living at Home), Andy Lara ’14 (“Brandon”, How Not to Talk to a Girl), Josh Rosado ’14 (“Patrick”, Girl Trouble) and Danny Hierro ’13 (“The Actor”, The Audition).
The evening will finish with Check Please, a fast-paced and hysterical short play about the hazards of blind dates. As the show’s official synopsis describes it, “Dating can be hard. Especially when your date happens to be a raging kleptomaniac, or your grandmother’s bridge partner, or a mime. Check Please follows a series of blind dinner dates that couldn’t get any worse — until they do. Could there possibly be a light at the end of the tunnel?” We hope so, and we’re excited to see it in action!
