Each year more than 500 Brookline High School students participate in our school's vibrant programs in music, dance, drama, and stagecraft, creating dozens of performances. A committee of the BHS PTO, FoPA is a volunteer parent organization dedicated to supporting this activity and to ensuring that the performing arts flourish and remain a vital part of education at BHS. Join us for our next FoPA meeting, March 2 at 7:00 p.m. in the Teachers' Lounge. Contact us if you'd like more information.
Spring auditions are posted. View the schedule here.

The Black Box Theater
"Good Kids" by Naomi Iizuka, is loosely based on the 2012 Steubenville rape case. The play explores important and complex topics including sexual assault, dating culture, party and alcohol culture, bystanding, issues of dress, decision-making, responsibility, and social media. None of the sexual violence is staged, but it is discussed in vague terms. There is use of adult and sexual language. Following each performance will be a discussion, moderated by school community experts, to open communication among teens and adults about these very real issues. It presents an opportunity to use theatre as an educational tool and to connect as a community.
