BHS musicals earn recognitions from Hennepin Theatre Trust

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.

‘The Crucible’ comes to BHS stage May 17-19

The award-winning play, “The Crucible,” will be performed at Burnsville High School at 7 p.m. on May 17, 18 and 19 and at 2:30 p.m. on May 19, in the Mraz Center, 600 E. Highway 13.

The play focuses on a farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie, and the plot thickens. Written by Arthur Miller, “The Crucible” won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953.

‘Music Man’ draws top marks from Hennepin Theatre Trust program

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.
