Brookstone to Perform At Edinburgh Festival Fringe
We have some very exciting news to share!
Brookstone School’s Theatre Arts Program, under the direction of Robby and Dotty Davis, has been selected to perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival, as part of the American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF).
Each August, Edinburgh, Scotland, becomes the most magical and exciting place on earth, as performing artists from all over the world take part in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The whole city becomes a stage, and visitors can view performances in every imaginable venue, from playgrounds to conference rooms, from city parks to churches. The Festival Fringe includes nearly 4,000 different performances of music, theatre, dance, and comedy during its three-week run. Brookstone was invited to showcase a performance as a part of AHSTF at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland during the summer of 2021 but have opted to delay their performance until the summer of 2022, hoping that restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic will have been completely lifted by that time.
Brookstone, recognized for its commitment to excellence in the performing arts, was selected by the AHSTF Board of Advisors, made up of college and regional theatre professionals, to represent our community as part of the AHSTF program. The Board reviews all completed applications and identifies the top high schools based on their most recent bodies of work, awards, community involvement, philosophies, and recommendations. Brookstone theatre director Robby Davis is a two-time alumnus of the AHSTF, and his record of outstanding leadership and direction of student performers attending the Festival Fringe also garnered recognition from the AHSTF Board of Advisors.
The show that Brookstone will perform at the Festival Fringe in Scotland will be announced in the coming months, and auditions for that show will be open to any students in the classes of 2022, 2023, 2024, and 2025.
