I recently received an email from a student at Eastern Suffolk BOCES in the Technical Theatre & The Performing Arts program, located in Bellport, New York. They will be producing the first ever high school production of Grey Gardens.
As we near the performance dates, I hope to have some images to share with you. All the best to Eastern Suffolk BOCES!
Our class has chosen to put on Grey Gardens as our main stage musical production this year. The show will be performed by a cast consisting of High School Juniors and Seniors, all of whom have done extensive character research. Our production includes lavish sets which we built and designed ourselves as well as revolutionary costumes that would get Little Edie herself, excited. Our performances run March 18 through March 28th with a total of 11 performances.
Apparently Carolina Forest High School will be the first high school production of the musical, but this raccoon is surely excited by both productions!
