BPA Theatre School Spring Showcase is June 2 & 4

Aberown Studio presents
BPA Theatre School Spring Showcase
June 2 & 4: Tuesday & Thursday @ 7:00 p.m.
At Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)

Join us in early June for BPA Theatre School’s Spring Showcase, a family-friendly event showcasing talented students in Grades 2 – 7. Director of Education Zandi Carlson is honored to see the students’ hopes and determination come to fruition on stage, and she is proud to lead BPA’s talented cadre of teaching artists. BPA Theatre School’s Spring Showcase offers a delightfully adventurous romp that will engage family members of all ages, and Zandi says, “These shows are shaping up to be the funniest BPA Theatre School shows to date. This is the perfect show for the whole community to come share in laughter together!”

The performance begins with THE DILEMMA OF HUMPTY DUMPTY written by Tina LaPlant and directed by Zandi Carlson. Popular nursery-rhyme characters come to life in this jumbled up and re-imagined tale! Humpty Dumpty guards the castle wall, and the mysterious One Eyed Jack is jealous. Will we finally find out if Humpty actually fell, or if it was something else entirely? Word-play and puns will delight children and adults alike in this fantastical production.

Next up is SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOOL by Louis Sachar, with adaptation by John Olive and direction by Julia Beers. Students have been turning into apples, there’s a cow loose in the school, and that’s just the start of the craziness here at Wayside School. Bizarre characters follow a zany classroom journey that promises to excite and thrill the entire family.

Join us for a charmingly humorous night of theatre that’s not to be missed! The 2015 Spring Showcase appears at BPA June 2 and 4, with shows Tuesday and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Tickets, $10 for adults and $5 for Seniors, Youth, Students, Military, and Teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island.
