March 14, 15 & 16, 2019

“When I was a boy, I wished I could fly.” So begins the story of the ingenious musical Peter and the Starcatcher being produced by the Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Theatre Program on March 14, 15 & 16, 2019, at 7 pm in the Gerrish Gym on the CBNA campus. The play by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker and based on the novel by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry,  tells the exciting story of a young orphan and his mates who are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training, who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. The talented cast is lead by freshman Mairead O’Shea as Boy/Peter and senior Braelin Ash as Starcatcher Molly Aster. The rest of the ensemble features seniors Brian Downer, Mackenzie Flanders, Cooper Leduke, Mason Lobello, Lily Marston and Cody Peck; juniors Ruby Carr, Patrick Helm, Brianna Jackson, Shannon Jackson, Mirah Johnston, Ethan Meeker, Connor Nowak, Caitlin Reynolds, Rylee Rogers and Lauren Rose; sophomores Alex Davidson, Mary Katherine Patteson, Clayton Price, Ben Poirier, Darin Sweet, Jordan Trahant and freshmen Calvin Swett, and Caleb Yates. The production stage manager is junior Madison Bowen. Faculty member Elizabeth Lent directs, with assistance and choreography from Ms. Kolby Hume. Music direction is by Mr. Colby Baker.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors and are available through www.cbnanh.booktix.com.

Recently, Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Forensics students had the opportunity to remotely access a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) courtesy of the University of New Hampshire’s Instrumentation Center through the collaboration of science faculty member Mrs. Tiffany Thompson and Mrs. Nancy Cherim, an Analytical Instrumentation Scientist at UNH. Forensic students and science faculty members had the opportunity to submit forensic samples to be analyzed. Through a video conference call with Mrs. Cherim, students were able to examine and measure the size of many different samples such as dog hairs, human hair, and other plant and animal specimens. From this opportunity, students were able to experience what is like to be a forensic scientist in the real world and see the difficulty in matching hair evidence to a single person or animal.
