Just a Name, Grade 6 Theater Production, Furey Hall
Tuesday, December 13, 7 p.m. & Wednesday, December 14, 11:25 a.m.
An adaptation of a play by Lindsay Price, Just a Name, is directed by Meg Agnew. The ensemble gives an “orchestra-like” expression to a series of very “human” moments – blunders, mistakes, and bad decisions ending in self-forgiveness and acceptance. It’s funny and heart-breaking, mortifying and uplifting. Come enjoy this courageous group of youngsters as they show us ourselves with all our foibles!
Grades 6-9 Indoor Soccer Program
BCD is sponsoring a weekly indoor soccer program during the winter trimester. Registration is on a first come, first served basis for a maximum of 15 students.
