The Big Bad Musical (Winter 2012)

 

On trial for his well-known crimes, The Big Bad Wolf
of legend and literature faces his accusers in this
riotous, song- and dance-filled courtroom drama
performed by the Pike Ninth Graders.

(Book by Alec Strum; music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur.)

Bleeding School Colors (Fall 2011)

 

This 8th Grade play, written and produced by the
students, was about rivalries. Through the scene work,
the students considered why rivalries begin, why
they continue, and why it is difficult to bring a rivalry
to an end. The play also examined the stressful and
destructive forces that arise when rivalries divide
families.

Orphan Train (Spring 2011)



Drama teacher Trisha Gordon and
music/music theater teacher Chris Desjardins
have taken the Ninth Graders, some of whom have
never been on stage before, and given them the
confidence to act and sing in this musical play by
Aurand Harris.

No Going Back (Spring 2011)



This year the theme for the student-written
8th Grade show was the evolution of communication.
The students decided to focus on how technology
has changed and will continue to change the way
we communicate with one another over time.They
created a show that takes place mostly in the future
and explores what could happen if a new piece of
technology called a "brain chip" replaces all forms
of communication as we know it.
