On Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, the Concord Academy community enjoyed the fall 2019 mainstage production: one of Shakespeare’s great comedies, A Midsummer Nights’s Dream, directed by CA theater teacher Megan Schy Gleeson. In a series of madcap mixups, lovers flee Athens and societal bounds, only to find themselves caught up in magic and mischief. Confused identities, a quarreling fairy queen and king, along with a motley group of amateur thespians rehearsing a play, all find their way in and through the forest. CA’s Green Club led a pre-show discussion about climate change before each evening’s performance. View photos from the show below.
For the second year, CA photography students will have work in the Griffin Museum of Photography High School Photography Exhibition at Regis College. Katherine Stirling-Ellis ’20 and Shanirah Rodriguez-Ponde ’20, who are pursuing independent work through departmental studies in photography this year, will each have two pieces in the juried show. The exhibition of student work from approximately 19 schools will run January 5-12, with an opening reception and presentation of awards on Sunday, January 5, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Carney Gallery at Regis College, 235 Wellesley Street, Weston, MA 02493.
Join us for the annual CA Holiday Music Concert on Friday, December 13, at 8:00 p.m. in the Chapel. No tickets are required.
