BHSTG Runs Into Buzzsaw

Despite a strong performance by the cast and crew, Theatre Guild was unable to move past the preliminary round of the METG Festival held yesterday at Marblehead Veteran Middle School.

BHSTG’s performance of Balcony Scene, directed by Nick D’Amico, was very well executed. Morgan Brown, Lorenzo Burnside, Catherine Conley, Jack Hennessey, Tommy MacLean, Laurel O’Keefe, Olivia Paluzzi, and Maverick Lydon Shay put on excellent individual performances, while also demonstrating some exceptional pairs and cast work.

Brown and Paluzzi were recognized by the judges with individual acting awards.

However, it was not enough as shows by Marblehead High School (Marat Sade), Brockton (Wiley and the Hairy Man), and Georgetown (Last Night In Town) advanced to the state semi-finals.

Balcony Scene will also be performed as part of BHSTG’s Night of One Act Plays this weekend. Showtimes are Thursday at 7, Friday at 8, and Saturday at 2 and 8. Tickets are available online at, at all lunches, or at the door. Contact Mr. Dahlbeck at with any questions
