Spring Improv Show Success

unnamedThe Spring Improv Show, directed by Maura Morrison, was held on May 16 and May 17 in the blackbox theater. We had 2 great audiences and sold out shows both nights.  Past members of ‘Needs Improv-Ment” acted as judges for our improv smack down.  There were 27 students in the cast, 6 house band musicians and 1 student on lights/sound.  Mr. Hancin and his art students created a fantastic POP art set.

The Northborough Cable Studio filmed the evening, and it can be viewed on their site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaZ8mlEtKfo&feature=youtu.be

Student artwork was displayed in a Pop-up Art Gallery outside of the cafeteria. During all lunches, students in the Fine & Performing Arts program demonstrated a taste of the arts through live music, drawing, painting, and wheel throwing demonstrations.
