Upper School Theater Wins National Award

Upper School Theater Wins National Award

Congratulations to the students and faculty in our Upper School Theater program who have won a prestigious national honor. The International Thespian Society, which consists of 5000 member schools, announced that BC’s original play “The Hope Project” will be one of only 13 high school productions in the country to play on the mainstage at their 2021 virtual festival. (Famous ITS alumni include actors Tom Hanks, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Val Kilmer.)

“The Hope Project” premiered this fall and takes the audience on a journey across America through the voices of real people, including doctors, teachers, and activists, to reflect on the major events of 2020 as they move from fear to hope. BC students wrote the script based on the interviews they conducted in collaboration with playwright Daniel K. Isaac.
