THE POWER OF THE ARTS

HEADLINES: A MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL, ROD FLETCHER

 

The arts have the power to shape and reform our reality. They can inspire us to greatness and help us deal with the deepest grief or sorrows. They also have the ability to lift our spirits and give us the joy of laughter.

 

The room on Thursday night during our annual Dinner Theatre was filled with laughter. The deep, full kind of laughter that helps you forget the worries of the day.

Dinner Theatre is the kind of experience that reminds me of how special it is to be part of Brook Hill. Maybe it is the delicious food or the wonderful people you share a meal with. But more likely, it’s the talent of our students and the power of a good story to transport you to another world.

Both Delirium’s Daughters and Three Swine of Most Small Stature will have you rolling with laughter. Then, all of a sudden, after the show is over, you’ll remember that you didn’t attend a show with a professional cast, but with high school students. That’s when the amazement and wonder will set in.

I am so proud of these students – their hard work, talent, and skill. I am thankful for the Ballard’s faithful and tireless dedication to the arts. I am grateful for the generous sponsors, donors, volunteers, and patrons who support the arts at Brook Hill.

If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, don’t wait another second! Shows are still scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. You can get your tickets at www.bhsofa.org

Also – mark your calendar for Monday, December 2nd at 6:30 pm for Christmas at the Brook. It will be a great showcase of our Middle and Upper School Choir & Orchestra students!
