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, December 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Teachers' Lounge. Contact us if you'd like more information.

"Holes" turns Louis Sachar's beloved novel on it's head! Stanley Yelnats is convicted of a crime he didn't commit and sentenced to Camp Green Lake—but it's not a camp, there's no lake, and the only green is left over from a kid called Barfbag! He blames his rotten luck on the Yelnats family curse, which traces back to his "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealin'-great-great-grandfather." In a program allegedly meant to build character, Stanley and the other "juvenile delinquents" spend their days digging huge holes under the brutal desert sun. But something much bigger than a hole is forming as fate begins to point Stanley toward his true destiny. Join Stanley, Zero, Kissin' Kate, Mr. Sir, the Warden, and other favorite characters from Sachar's book for a rowdy adventure with a twist you won't soon forget.
