BHS Fine and Performing Arts Department had a very excitingweekend. Our Thespian Troupe attended the NJ State Thespian Festival at Kean University. Our Chapter Select performance of our Fall play A Midsummer Night’sDream came in 3rd place in the state. This production also garnered awards for BHS Junior Eve Brescia who won 1st place in the state for best leading actress, and Junior Sami Schroll who won 2nd place for Best Supporting Actress. Midsummer also starred Olivia Hogan, Keith Lee, Kyle Zeitler, Collin Paul, and Melanie DeRosa, with support from ensemble members Kat Davies, Sam Hare, Tessa Chris, Linda McNulty, Shannon Bonhard, and Amanda McKeon. It was the first time that a main stage production from Barnegat has placed in the top three. We are very proud of these accomplishments as well as the following individual and group achievements which were awarded Accomplished Performance Medals, marking them as the very best of the festival:

Keith Lee and Eve Brescia for Comedy Duo Scene
