CBNA Theatre Students to Present Once Upon a Mattress

CBNA students Janais Axelrod as Princess Winnifred and Joseph Guptill as Prince Dauntless rehearse a scene from Once Upon a Mattress.

CBNA students Janais Axelrod as Princess Winnifred and Joseph Guptill as Prince Dauntless rehearse a scene from Once Upon a Mattress.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Theatre will proudly present the whimsical musical Once Upon a Mattress on October 22, 23 and 24, 2015 at 7 pm in the Gerrish Gym on the CBNA campus. With Music by Mary Rodgers, Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer, and Lyrics by Marshall Barer, Once Upon a Mattress turns the story of The Princess and the Pea on its head. Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab, or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or did you know that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again. The cast includes seniors Janais Axelrod, Jessica Cooper, Isaac Guzofski, Jared Neal, Emily Therrien, and Ryan Wadleigh; juniors Cassandra Barnhart, Lauren Burrows, Joseph Guptill, and Arianna Jones; sophomores Sandra Black, Erin Boodey, Zachary Helm, Nina Laramee, Jacob Lock, Kayla Pollak, Alyssa Reiff, Allison Rose, Courtney Snow, and Julia Sommers; and freshmen Braelin Ash, Shayla Ashley, Ian Gollihur, Mackenzie Flanders, Cooper Leduke, Logan Morton, Olivia Roach and Madison Rollins. The production is directed by faculty member Elizabeth Lent with choreography by Kolby Hume and musical direction by David Deardorff. Reserved tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors, and will be available after October 19 by calling 942-5531, ext. 237, by email elent@coebrown.org or at the main office before or after school. Hope to see you there.

On Saturday, February 7th, Coe-Brown Northwood Academy hosted the 2015 Special Olympics of New Hampshire Seacoast Area Winter Games. A proud tradition for about a decade, these games were finally held again after three years of cancellation due to lack of snow and poor field conditions. About 200 Special Olympics athletes from many teams around the state competed in cross-country ski and snowshoe events ranging from 10 to 7,500 meters in length. Event coordinator and faculty member Shawn White and Special Olympics Field Coordinator Miranda Morse would like to thank the many Coe-Brown faculty, staff, and student volunteers whose efforts both ensured and enhanced the success of this event. They would also like to thank the Northwood Crankpullers Association for helping to pack down snow on the race tracks, and Bryana Clark of Exeter, our current Miss New Hampshire Teen National, for joining us. We look forward to next year’s games.

The Harlem Rockets Comedy Basketball Team Is Coming to CBNA

Rockets Team Picture

Members of the Harlem Rockets Showtime Basketball will be coming to Coe-Brown on Friday, November 21, 2014 to benefit CBNA Hoop.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy will be hosting some very special guests on Friday, November 21, 2014 at 7 pm at the Smith Hall gym on the CBNA Campus. The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible show time basketball skills and family-friendly comedy, will face the CBNA Faculty All-Stars in a game benefiting the CBNA Basketball Program.

Having played over 2500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets. Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Clarence “Mugsy” Leggett. Mugsy is one of the world’s extraordinary dribblers and a former Harlem Globetrotter, satiated by the game of Devon “The People’s Choice” Curry and left awestruck by high-flying dunks of Cliff “Jet Blue” Malone, who was featured in the Nike commercial released on Super Bowl Day. Since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the All Time Funny Man and one of Show Basketball’s Greats……. James “Speedy “Williams, who was featured in the movie, “Above The Rim” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin. Speedy was also one of the “Original Nike Free-Style Ballers in the Nike Commercial, he performed live at the MTV Music Awards while Jay Z did his thing, and is better known as The “Crowned Prince of Laughs”. The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.

In this special event to raise money for the Coe-Brown Northwood Academy boys and girls basketball programs, the CBNA Faculty All-Star “Dream Team” has graciously agreed to face the Harlem Rockets.

Advance tickets for what promises to be a fun-filled evening for the community are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults and are available from basketball team members or at the CBNA Main Office. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the game at a cost of $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults. Get your tickets early. This is a special event you don’t want to miss.
