Bloomfield High School Thespian Society launches a new theatrical event this weekend, the Spring Theatre Project. Conceived and directed by Brandon E. Doemling, featuring a cast of twenty-four performers and an all-student band comprised of 22 musicians, it is an evening of song, scene and poetry entitled, “Be As You Are.”
The musical direction and arrangements (Hannah Elarmo & Candice McCloud), vocal direction (Jarred Lee), lighting design (Jarred Lee) and stage management (Aziz Naouai) are all the creation of the student thespians.
See the attached video preview here of tonight's show, put together by BHS senior Nora Nalepka.
Audiences will be treated to new arrangements of Broadway classics and pop composers around the theme of the struggles, the joys, and the pride in finding your own identity. From the Bard of Avon to J.D. Salinger, Sly and the Family Stone, and Lady Gaga; classical, mid-century, and contemporary voices remind us that it is indeed a timeless theme.
Performances will take place on Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th at 7:30 p.m. in the Bloomfield High School Doris E. Gilbert Auditorium at 160 Broad Street. Tickets are $5.00 for general admission, and may be purchased at the door.
