2015 Food Drive Results

The International Thespian Society (ITS), a division of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), is pleased to announce the results of Bordentown Regional High School's Thespian Troupe 6803’s participation in the International Thespian Society’s  Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program. This year, ITS Troupe 6803 collected 5,000 pounds of canned and dry goods for Burlington Community and Emergency Services. This is the most food the troupe has collected in a single year since they began participating in the program in 2010.

 

Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat is a national community service program for ITS member schools to collect canned and dry goods for local charities and food banks. Thespian troupes from across the country are participated in the program this year, and thousands of pounds of food were collected across the state, giving theatre students the ability to help their local community. Bordentown students collected food throughout October, as well as at the Bordentown Halloween Parade and by going door to door on Halloween to collect food donations instead of candy.

 

In six years of participation in the program, Troupe 6803 has collected over 20,000 pounds of donations. BordentownRegional High School's Thespian Troupe 6803 would like to extend their gratitude to everyone who donated to those in need.

 

In 2010, the generous donations of the Bordentown community helped Troupe 6803 to surpass their original goal of 1,000 pounds and ultimately donate 2,002 pounds of food. For this, Bordentown Regional High School ITS Troupe #6803 was awarded the 2010 Harvest Excellence Award by the International Thespian Society.

 

The Educational Theatre Association, founded in 1929, is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and strengthen theatre education as a means of lifelong learning. A professional association for theatre educators, EdTA also operates the International Thespian Society, an honorary organization for high school theatre students.

 

The Bordentown Regional High School Theatre Club and Stage Crew are part of the International Thespian Society, an honor organization for students who excel in the theatrical arts. The BRHS Thespian Troupe 6803 has produced students who are not only performers, but directors, designers, technicians, leaders, and community activists. Their annual season of dramas, comedies, children’s theatre, musicals, festivals, and one act plays have garnered BRHS numerous awards and nominations from the New Jersey State Thespian Festival, the International Thespian Festival, the New Jersey Theatre Night Awards, and the Greater Philadelphia Cappies Awards.

2015 Cappies Awards
At Saturday night’s Greater Philadelphia Cappie Award Gala, Bordentown Regional High School junior Cynthia Reynolds was awarded the 2015 Cappie Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Musical for her role as Gladys in the BRHS musical, The Pajama Game!

The Gala, held at the Eastern Regional Performing Arts Center, honored high school theatre productions from the 2014-2015 season.

Bordentown Regional High School’s spring production of The Pajama Game and the BRHS Theatre program were nominated for seven Greater Philadelphia 2015 Cappie Awards. Cynthia Reynolds and Mary Liz White were recognized with nominations for Outstanding Junior Critic. Senior Dakota Torres received a nomination for Outstanding Female Vocalist for her role in The Pajama Game, and the Steam Heat dancers Cynthia Reynolds, Haley Szenczi and freshman Sarah Reichard were nominated for Outstanding Dance Ensemble. Senior Haley Szenczi was nominated as Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical, and the entire BRHS Cappies Critic Team received a nomination, recognizing their hard work and writing talent this year.

BRHS seniors Haley Szenczi, Carolyne Gonzalez, Ivan Trancon, Erin Hansell, and Leah Tasseff performed in the Cappies opening number in front of an audience of over 1300 people at last night's ceremony. Dakota Torres and Leah Tasseff also assisted in the ceremony as "Vannas", bringing trophies and microphones out to award winners throughout the evening. BRHS principal Mr. Rob Walder represented Bordentown Regional High School as a Cappies awards presenter.

The Cappies is a national program that honors and celebrates the achievements of high school theatre, which culminates in an annual Gala. The Bordentown Regional High School Cappies Critics Team (Lead Critic Haley Szenczi, and team members Ivan Trancon, Cynthia Reynolds, Mary Liz White, Cassie Bolinger, and Michaela Mabin) have been working hard all year, attending area productions and serving as the BRHS representatives for the Cappies program.

TRICK OR TREAT SO KIDS CAN EAT:  

"BECAUSE HUNGER IS A VERY SCARY THING"

Check the September issue of Dramatics Magazine... that's our former president Megan Sirak, starring as Minerva in the premiere staging of Shelf Life by Beth Seeley during Thespian Playworks at the 2012 International Thespian Festival!

Bordentown Regional High School Students Attend The 2012 International Thespian Festival

 

So what do high school theatre students do once they’ve won the 2012 Greater Philadelphia Area Cappie Award for Best Musical?

 

Get on a plane and head off to Nebraska, obviously.

 

That may sound strange… unless you know that Lincoln, Nebraska is home to the annual International Thespian Festival, which is the premiere event on the high school theatre calendar. And for five Bordentown Regional High School students, there was no place they’d rather go to start off their summer vacation.

 

BRHS students Rachel Gordon, Ashley Hansell, Erin Hansell, Matthew Luyber, and Megan Sirak and their troupe director Stacie Morano spent last week in attendance at the 2012 International Thespian Festival. These students are members of International Thespian Society Troupe #6803, an honor they earned through their hard work and dedication to the performing arts. While in Nebraska, they participated in workshops for everything from college audition preparation to costume design, auditioned for college programs, and discussed theatre with students and professionals from around the world.

 

The week showcases qualifying high school performances on four stages, a wealth of learning opportunities for students and educators in over one hundred workshops and master classes, a student leadership program, auditions for college admission and Thespian scholarships, the Thespian Playworks student playwriting program, and much more. The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed Thespian Festival 2012 on its National Advisory List of Activities for 2012.

Megan Sirak, who graduated from BRHS only days before attending the Festival, was chosen from among hundreds of auditioning actors to perform in this year’s Thespian Playworks program. Thespian Playworks is a writing competition and script-development program for high school students, sponsored by the Educational Theatre Association and run by the staff of Dramatics magazine. Each year, up to four finalists are invited to bring their scripts the Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska, where they work with a professional director, a dramaturg, and a cast of actors to put the short plays up on their feet before a live audience. Megan performed the role of Minerva in the premiere staging of Shelf Life by Beth Seeley, a play about the lives of dolls in a museum.

The International Thespian Festival also hosts the National Individual Events Showcase, which is an educational program that offers Festival delegates the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on prepared theatrical material and technical designs. The goal for participating students is to find their talent, strengths, and weaknesses and to grow as theatre artists. This year, Bordentown Regional High School was represented in the National Events Showcase auditions by junior Matthew Luyber, who performed contrasting monologues and received superior scores from the Festival judges. Matthew qualified for performance on the national level by achieving a Superior Medal rating at the New Jersey State Thespian Festival this past March.

 

This was the second year in a row Troupe #6803 attended the Festival, but it has already become a highly anticipated annual event for the students of BRHS. With comments like “It was the best week of my life!” (Rachel Gordon) and “I learned so much” (Erin Hansell), it’s no surprise that for BRHS actors, the plans for attending for next year’s festival have already begun.

Some students go to exotic countries for their summer vacations. This year, five Bordentown Regional High School students kicked off their summer breaks by spending a week in Nebraska.
