"Death of a Salesman" Presented Feb. 15-18


The CBHS Theatre Program exists as an ongoing educational venue in theatrical arts geared toward education and enlightening students, performers and spectators alike, toward the understanding that the ARTS are a vital and meaningful part of the human existence. The number one goal of theatre is education. To that end, the theatre staff work diligently to provide performance opportunities for as many students as possible who might wish to experience being a part of a theatrical stage work. This helps to ensure that many young men of CBHS, and female participants from other schools, have the exposure to theatrical arts education. There are opportunities galore for students of all talents - from actors and singers, to dancers, instrumentalists, designers, and those who love technical work. All young men who attend CBHS are eligible for auditions. Actresses from local high schools are part of our program, and we are always open to all who wish to audition and participate. Novice and veteran performers alike have a home with the CBHS theatre program.

The Tempest
was held April 25 - 28 in the Breezeway between McEniry and the main building. The Tempest is a fantastic journey of magic, love, vengeance, and redemption. The deposed Duke of Milan Prospero has used his magic to entrap his betrayers, his brother and the King of Naples, on his island. He must then choose between the vengeance that he so desires or the virtuous forgiveness that his young daughter demands. This is truly an epic tail of the test of love and forgiveness against the temptation of vengeance propelled by a group of nobles, spirits, and a hag spawn.

Death of a Salesman evolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the "American Dream" kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre." Winner of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play.
