The Show Must Go On! - Third Term Musical Theatre

Jun 04, '21

Live theatre, especially that of the musical type, is something that is cemented in Brentwood’s legacy. To those who watch from the comfort of the house, it seems that the only purpose of the program is to put work into our extravagant March performance, year in and year out. While that is a large part of our program - which we were very lucky to...

Musical Theatre Thanks

Mar 04, '21

It is my privilege today that I can present two traditions that usually happen at the closing of the final show in the run of the musical, but as we wanted some live audience to be able to acknowledge the recipients, we decided to wait until this post-show assembly. If you read Jack NG’s latest blog article, A Pandemic Performance, he says...

A Pandemic Performance

Mar 01, '21

A week before the show, the cast and crew of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat received some really disappointing news: this year's show would be put on without Brentwood’s supportive audience. Additionally, we would be required to wear masks on stage whenever physical distancing was impossible, and all physical interactions needed...

Mr Rodrigues is King

Privett House has been blessed with the presence of Mr Rick Rodrigues and his family since 2003. Mr Rodrigues, affectionately known as RJ, started off as an Assistant Houseparent in Privett until 2005. Since then he was moved to Thursday duty and moved back into the house in 2010.

Jump for Joseph

Feb 12, '21

As campus wound down for the last days before Midterm Break, and many students started to switch into holiday mode, the musical cast and crew were taking no days off in preparation for their upcoming shows in late February and early March. Don’t get me wrong, to Mrs. Widenmaier’s ultimate displeasure, we are going on break, but it will be of no...

With the conviction that creativity fosters wellness, imagination, community and joy, Brentwood proudly offers a diverse range of arts across four hour-long periods each Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon. In the emotionally challenging time of the pandemic, these virtues are of heightened importance. To optimize these opportunities, a...

Farewell, For Now, From the Arts Prefect

Jul 07, '20

The following address was delivered at the School's final assembly of the 2019-2020 academic year in early June, 2020. Last night I was thinking about what to put in this final speech, and I did not know where to start. I didn’t know whether or not to make it about the people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned, the experiences I’ve had, or the...

The Arts Fair - Celebrating the Arts on Zoom

Jun 11, '20

We inherently understand how important arts are in everyone’s life either as the creator or the audience. Arts heal, console, inspire. They allow us to play. They are fuel for our hearts and minds. They lift us up. Every arts afternoon we have been privileged as our teachers continue to nurture the creative blossoming of all our students. We...

A Week in Spamalot

Mar 03, '20

Last week, Brentwood’s musical program performed their much-anticipated production of Monty Python’s Spamalot. Preparing since September, the cast and crew members were excited to show us their work through one of the most comedic, enthralling and astounding performances the school has seen yet. The actors led the audience through an imitation...

Countdown to Spamalot

Feb 11, '20

As second term at Brentwood comes slowly to a close, knights, minstrels, and Laker Girls alike will put the finishing touches on this year’s Brentwood College School musical: Monty Python’s Spamalot. With opening night soon approaching on February 26th, the cast and crew are busy at work, backed by Mr. Newns and his twenty-piece orchestra....
