Last week the BCSS junior drama class presented an abridged version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. The play was adapted to give the class the ability to perform a renowned dramatic work in a short timeframe.

The Life Skills program at BCSS is comprised of classes in food, sewing, information technology, art, woodworking and drama. Classes are rotated every six weeks, providing Grade 8 and 9 students the opportunity to experience all elective classes. This enables students to choose subjects that interest them upon entering senior studies in Grade 10.

“This class rotation was comprised of a unique collection of gifted and dedicated young actors,” said drama teacher Sarah Tripp. “These students took the performance very seriously, worked extremely hard and as a result created an extremely solid show. It is sometimes a challenge for young students to stay focused and organized in order to put on a production that runs smoothly, but this group was very tight. I am both proud and inspired by our junior talent here at BCSS.”

Performances of note included those by Noah Kingsley as Oberon, Stephanie Bugeaud as Helena, Kellan Shipton as Nick Bottom and Elijah Levins as Puck.
