Students Set to Stage “Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons” May 20 & 22

Lawrence Academy Juniors Rachel Gallant & Mia Gage present Steiner’s play

On Sunday, May 12, Director of Theatre Joel Sugerman announced:

“Here is a performance that you should come to if you like good theatre: Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons – the final performance of a theatre intensive independent by juniors Rachel Gallant and Mia Gage, Monday and Wednesday, May 20 & 22 in the Theatre Classroom.”

The Goodreads.com synopsis reads:

The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? Oliver and Bernadette are about to find out.

“Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons” imagines a world where we’re forced to say less.

It’s about what we say and how we say it; about the things we can only hear in the silence; about dead cats, activism, eye contact and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons…

Sounds so intriguing! Break a leg Mia and Rachel

#TBT: Lin-Manuel Miranda at LA

LinMan_atLA

We knew him when…

At the time Lin-Manuel Miranda was already the Tony and Grammy-winning composer-lyricist of Broadway’s In the Heights (which received four 2008 Tony Awards, with Miranda receiving a Tony Award for Best Score, and a nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical).

Since then, well, he’s become LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA, and we’ve marveled at his work on Hamilton, on the soundtracks of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Moana.

Soon, we’ll see our Mees Visiting Scholar in Disney’s sequel to 1964’s Mary Poppins.

Now, we stand in awe of his work on behalf of hurricane survivors in Puerto Rico.

In any case, as we begin preparations for this year’s Mees Scholar, we celebrate TBT (throwback Thursday) with a look back at Mr. Miranda’s visit to campus.

We’ll be announcing this year’s Mees Visiting Scholar soon!
