CBNA Theatre Students to Present Radium Girls March 12, 13 & 14

 

CBNA Theatre Students to Present

 D.W. Gregory’s Radium Girls March 12, 13 & 14, 2020

 

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Theatre will present the drama Radium Girls March 12, 13 and 14, 2020 at 7 pm in the Gerrish Gym on the CBNA campus.  In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage – until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Called a “powerful” and “engrossing” drama by critics, the play offers an unflinching look at American obsessions with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.  The company of 26 actors, playing more than 40 roles, is led by seniors Lauren Rose as Grace Fryer and Patrick Helm as Arthur Roeder, Grace’s former employer at the US Radium Corporation. Other cast members include seniors Katherine Blake, Ruby Carr, Emily Dallaire, Olivia Fontes, Brianna Jackson, Shannon Jackson, Mirah Johnston, Connor Nowak, Caitlin Reynolds, and Rylee Rogers; juniors Alex Davidson, Mary Katherine Patteson, Clayton Price, Igor Stojkov, Darin Sweet, and Jordan Trahant; sophomores Mairead O’Shea and Calvin Swett; and freshmen Emberlynn Connor, Christopher Helm, Sam Marcotte, Sierra McGahey, Allie McGuigan, and Christopher Reed. The production is directed by faculty member Elizabeth Lent. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Reserved tickets are available at http://cbnanh.booktix.com. Contact elent@coebrown.org or 603-942-5531 ext. 237 for more information.

VFW Announces NH Voice of Democracy Scholarship Winner from CBNA

VFW Announces New Hampshire Voice of Democracy Scholarship Winner from Coe-Brown Northwood Academy

Concord, NH. – Ellie Wolthuis, a sophomore at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy in Northwood, NH, was named the VFW Department of New Hampshire’s first-place winner in the 2019-2020 Voice of Democracy Scholarship program. VFW Post 7217 in Northwood, NH, sponsored Ellie. 

“The Voice of Democracy competition provides high school students with the opportunity to speak out on freedom and democracy,” says VFW Department Commander Christopher Peirce “The program has been popular and successful since its beginning in 1947, and we’re proud to keep offering it to America’s young people.”

 The Voice of Democracy is a worldwide audio-essay competition that requires entrants to write and record a three-to-five-minute essay on a patriotic-based theme. “What Makes America Great” was this year’s theme. 

As one of 53 finalists worldwide, Ellie Wolthuis will travel to Washington, D.C., and compete at the national level for the first-place prize of a $30,000 college scholarship. 

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) started the Voice of Democracy Scholarship program in 1947. The VFW became a national sponsor in the late 1950s and assumed sole responsibility for the program in 1961. The competition was created to provide students grades 9-12 the opportunity to express themselves with regard to democratic ideas and principles. Around 40,000 students participate in the competition each year and VFW awards more than $2.1 million in scholarships every year.

Senior One Act Plays

After the closing of their recent musical, Cinderella, the CBNA theatre program has promptly gotten back to work. Their new endeavor: Senior One Acts. The One Acts consist of one scene with up to six characters, all directed by seniors. Some are, in fact, senior projects.

I have had the pleasure to interview one of the student directors, Caitlin Reynolds, who’s piece is called Jumping by William Borden, and features a man (played by: Calvin Swett, grade 11) who has just been cheated on by his wife and is about to jump off a bridge when a woman (played by: Ruby Carr, grade 12) approaches him and tries to force her political views onto him, evidently causing them to fall in love. 

Caitlyn says she chose this piece because it, “Really speaks to her,” has a good message, and shows us that, “There is still love in this world.” She says she knows her actors very well and when reading the piece she saw them playing the characters. She says she can’t wait to see it all come together and is very excited for the final show. She also says that although she didn’t choose to do this as her senior project, she has wanted to direct one of the one acts since she was a freshman. Her stage manager, freshman Cassandra Clery, is equally as excited. 

Along with Jumping, there are four additional one acts. Medieval Medicine directed by Madison Bowen, The Meaning of Halloween directed by Patrick Helm, In the Waiting Room of the Ghost Placement Agency directed by Abi Pellitier, and Weekend Warriors directed by Mrs. Lent and assistant directed by Lauren Rose. 

All cast, crew and theatre friends are very excited for this newest endeavor. Please join us on December 11th in the Garrish Gym at 7pm to watch these wonderful and hilarious shows!
