Student-written plays being performed on BHS stage (151)

BELMONT — Belmont High School  Drama is presenting an evening of student written plays accompanied by selections from
The Bully Plays tonight and  Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the high school cafeteria
Over five months, drama students polled and interviewed their peers at BHS, collecting ideas and student writing on what it means to be in and "survive" high school. They have compiled this large body of work into a series of short sketches, monologues and plays, which they premiered this week. Along with the student written plays, four one-act shorts from a Dramatic Publishing collection entitled The Bully Plays will also be presented.
Sometimes sad, other times hilarious, this presentation covers everything from texting, dating, bullying, suicide, self-esteem, gender issues and identity and fitting in.
This production is appropriate for middle school-age through adult. Tickets are $7. Proceeds will support the drama club's endeavor to purchase stage lights for the high school.
