TG Takes Home Three Awards

Despite not being selected to move on to the state semifinals of the METG Festival, BHSTG’s performance of Noises Off Saturday at Norwell High School won three awards for acting, and received praise for the set.

Christine Burke, Allie Preston, and Joshua Van Alfen were all named to the All Star Company for their roles in the show. Van Alfen was also recognized in the preliminary round.

After the announcement of the All Star Company, the hosts acknowledged the day’s seventh show – the BHSTG cast and crew erecting a two story house on stage in under five minutes.

BHS competed against Lynn English, Peabody, Weymouth, Notre Dame Academy and Xaverian. Peabody’s performance of The Long Christmas Ride Home and Notre Dame Academy’s adaptation of Medea were chosen by the three judge panel to advance to the state finals in Boston.

This was just the fifth time that BHSTG has advanced to the semifinals.
