Did you know that Mary Bayer, Elgin Academy's Upper School Theatre instructor, has directed every Upper School Theatre production (both the plays and musicals) for the last 14 years? That's a lot of decisions to be made as to what productions to stage to appeal to an audience that often ranges from preschoolers to grandparents. In this month's podcast, Notes from the Hill, Bonita Goist speaks to Mary Bayer as well as senior, Jaden Tabak, about Upper Theatre, their favorite roles, and just how Ms. Bayer decides what shows to stage each year.
At the Upper School assembly last Monday, Ms. Bayer announced the spring musical for 2020 is The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Mark your calendar for March 6 & 7th! You can listen to the podcast in its entirety by clicking here.
