The upper school drama club performed a gripping adaptation of “Lord of the Flies” for TBS audiences and guests April 28, 29 in Benjamin hall. Upper school drama teacher Tom Bazar directed the production written by William Golding.
“This production of LOF is the culmination of an exciting season for the Drama Club . . . We continue our tradition of tackling plays that are part of our English curriculum by staging one of the most fascinating and powerful novels ever written. I had my reservations of tackling such a demanding work but when I found the stage adaptation by Nigel Williams, I thought we might have a chance,” Bazar said.
“Once again, you will see Benjamin students and actors showcasing the spirit of creativity, collaboration and risk-taking.”
Senior Brealauna Leassear acted as the assistant director for the production. Jill Nicklaus ‘89 was in charge of choreography and performing arts department chair Sara Salivar was responsible for set and costume design.
Congratulations to the entire cast and crew!
