Our spring play has its world premiere tonight at 7:00 p.m. (with a second performance tomorrow evening, also at 7:00 p.m.) and I hope many of you can join us! Titled Fancy Me Mad, it’s an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe works created by our English teachers and drama team of Michelle Salerno and Juan Ramirez. Fancy Me Mad is also site-specific, with each short play performed in a different area around the school. In the afternoons over the past few weeks, I’ve been witness to some fascinating things around school: hearing random blood-curdling screams and coming across skeletons sitting in a windowsill, for starters. I watched the dress rehearsal last night and was a) completely creeped out by these otherwise pleasant students coughing, bleeding, murdering, and generally tormenting one another through the evening and b) impressed with how well they pulled off this complex production. Please come see Fancy Me Mad! More information below.

Plays include The Masque of the Red Death, Berenice, Pit and the Pendulum, Ligeia, William Wilson, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, The Black Cat, and The Raven.
