BIS has staged a variety of Musicals over the last years. Since 2012, our Secondary students performed increasingly more challenging and polished performances at a local public theatre.
BIS students from Grades 7–11 have been rehearsing since May to perform the junior version of Legally Blonde on stage.
Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington III. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
A fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances.
Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!
Into the Woods
On 25-26 September, 2014 at the Brotfabrik in Bonn
BIS sucessfully staged the musical production of INTO THE WOODS by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim.
When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the objects required to break the spell. They go about swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella (with the slipper as pure as gold) Little Red Ridinghood (with a cape as red as blood), Rapunzel (with the hair as yellow as corn) and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk - with the cow as white as milk). Everyone’s wish is granted but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. Thus, what begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
