Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Theatre will proudly present the award winning musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on October 23, 24 and 25, 2014 at 7 pm in the Gerrish Gym on the CBNA campus. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tells the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors which comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. The title character of Joseph is played by junior Isaac Guzofski, and the Narrators of this great story are played by senior Rachel Dallaire and junior Janais Axelrod. Other cast members bring the tale to life include seniors Olivia Anatone, Hannah Grady, Jordan Roach, Colton Rush, and Alec Schleich; juniors Jessica Cooper, Claire Hammond, Damian May, Jared Neal, Emily Therrien, and Ryan Wadleigh; sophomores Cassandra Barnhart, Sierra Brady, Lauren Burrows, William Girard, Joseph Guptill, and Arianna Jones; and freshmen Zachary Helm, Nina Laramee, Kayla Pollak, and Allison Rose. The production is directed by faculty member Elizabeth Lent with musical direction by David Deardorff and choreography by Kolby Hume. Reserved tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors, and are available by calling 942-5531, ext. 237, by email elent@coebrown.org or at the main office before or after school. This dazzling and entertaining performance is one you don’t want to miss.

TWO CBNA STUDENTS COMMENDED IN 2015 NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Headmaster David Smith of Coe-Brown Northwood Academy announced today that seniors Aurora Goodwin and Katheryn Huckins, have been named commended students in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. A letter of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the headmaster to these scholastically talented seniors.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Twelve Coe-Brown Northwood Academy students, led by CBNA Spanish Professor Michael Clauss, traveled to Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula in June, 2014 for an educational tour. The group traveled to several Mayan archeological sites, including Chichén Itzá, one of the seven wonders of the modern world. They also visited the Spanish colonial cities of Valladolid, Mérida, and Chetumal, had lessons in traditional dance, tried many types of regional food, visited a traditional Mayan home and experienced eco-tourism by swimming in waterfalls, in underground caves, and at Mexico’s pristine beaches. Collecting photos of VW beetles and items for a photo scavenger hunt rounded out the fun.
