’451′ at Burlington High
BURLINGTON -- Burlington High School will present its fall drama production, “Fahrenheit 451,” on Friday, Dec. 15, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 16, at 2 p.m., in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center at BHS.
Based on Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel published in 1953, it is a powerful drama about the inner struggle of Guy Montag, a fireman. Set in a bleak, dystopian future, Montag has worked as a civil servant for 10 years burning books, but lately he has become increasingly unsure about what he is doing and about his vegetable-like existence. It is not until he meets 16-year-old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now he must choose between continuing his nonexistent existence and risking everything for the right to think.
Directed by Kade Hill, the cast of “Fahrenheit 451” is led by Ben Horgan, Michelle Pothier, Mia Campbell, Caitlin Shea, Erin Kerr, Luis Vallalta and Ivy Saltsman.
Also appearing are Diana Sears, Ashwini Shinde, Christina Raposo, Alison Martin, Christian Weisse, Levi Theirrien, Grace Visco and Nathaniel Trofimow.
Others involved in the production include Oluwamayowa Ariyo, Nataleigh Barrucci, Lorraine Gaiero, Madelyne Gooltz, Julianna Grossman, Angela Minichiello, Caroline O’Callaghan, Makenna Rousseau, Kayla Santiano, Levi Theirrien, Grace Visco, Jensine Wagner, Christian Weisse and Kathryn Woodilla.
Tickets range from $10 to $15, and are available at www.BurlingtonTheatre.com , 781-A-FUN-TIC, and at the door on the days of the performances.
