The Burnsville High School Theatre Guild began participating this year in Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight Education, a program that evaluates casts, crews and technicians as well as providing master classes for high school theatre students.
The school’s two musicals, “The Music Man” and “Mary Poppins,” both earned outstanding rankings in recent recognition from Hennepin Theatre Trust. Along with these high ranks, came specific feedback for many individual performers both on stage and behind the scenes.
A comedy called “Road Trippin” is the spring theater production at Metcalf Middle School in Burnsville.
Written and directed by teacher and drama director Steven Orth, the play follows the misguided misadventures of four teens who “borrow” mom’s car and take off into the night on an unplanned and unlimited road trip across the American West.
Eagle Ridge Theatre presents "Willy Wonka," with performances at 7 p.m. on April 26-28 and May 3-5, plus 3 p.m. matinees on April 28 and May 5.
All seats are $9 and tickets can be purchased online at www.eagleridgeshows.com.
Many audience members called Burnsville High School Theatre Guild’s fall production of “The Music Man” outstanding, but it was also the official rating of the show according to Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight Education program.
Spotlight Education is a program by Hennepin Theatre Trust in Minneapolis that honors and supports high school theater students in 94 high schools throughout Minnesota, including Burnsville High School. This is BHS’s first year being part of the program.
BHS theater Director Amy Stead praised both the program and the theater students.
