A Student Among Pros

Mar 20, '17

On stage, Brentwood’s performers dazzled and charmed with the spectacle of Mary Poppins and its memorable score. It’s easy to recognize the role the singers and dancers played in the show, of course, and the crew’s role is crucial to a successful performance. One performer, however, made her contributions not from behind the scenes, but below...

A Musical Marathon

Mar 01, '17

A musical is a butterfly. It metamorphoses from a plan to a work in progress and, finally, to a show. It grows slowly at first, then rapidly, to emerge in full-fledged splendour. In late September, auditions are held and rehearsals begin. Then, March seems so far off, and musical is not foremost in the cast’s mind. In January, momentum...

Many Musical Emotions

Mar 08, '16

The curtain is closed. The audience has left. The stage is swept. Musical is over, and for some of us it is quintessentially bittersweet. Surely it could be bittersweet for any of the cast and crew, but I am specifically referring to the Grade 12s. No matter if they’re like Caitlin W, Mack ‘16 completing her sixth Brentwood musical, or like...

Stage over Snow
