Every fall, our school-wide community eagerly awaits the run of critically acclaimed shows performed by our award-winning GSB Players. The headlining performances never fail to delight and captivate all audiences. Given the pandemic, we yearn even more for those dearly missed in-person plays and the enchanting distraction they provide.
But wait! This year, our faithful acting troupe, as usual, will not disappoint.
On December 15, the GSB Players will premiere Agatha Christie’s radio play, Murder in the Studio, a duo of one-acts entitled Personal Call and Butter in a Lordly Dish – whodunnits sure to bring thrills and chills. Tune in remotely at the premiere to hear the mysterious tales of murder and mayhem in support of the Performing Arts Department. The opening night audience will receive vintage-style candy to enjoy while listening to the riveting online broadcast directed by Paul Canada, performing arts chair.
"Since we cannot perform our fall production live this year, our radio show gives us an opportunity to bring our community together and honor our fall theater arts tradition," said Mr. Canada. "This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of Agatha Christie's first novel. Performing the two radio plays she wrote for the BBC is a great way to recognize the centennial and her contributions to world literature. I hope you join us for a haunting night of exciting and lively entertainment."
While the show’s launch on December 15 will be a fall fundraiser featuring GSB's 15-member cast, a link to the pre-recorded production will be released to the entire GSB community the following day.
