13 THE MUSICAL At Pierson High School Supports Bay Street Theater

Bay Street Theater is pleased to announce that International Baccalaureate Program at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor will present "13 The Musical", on September 14 and 15, to benefit Bay Street Theater's Literature Live! program. Each year Literature Live! offers free tickets to school groups to attend a professional production of a literature classic taught in the schools. This year, Bay Street Theater's Literature Live! production is "The Great Gatsby," by F. Scott Fitzgerald, running November 5-25.

Help support and enjoy a student-produced Pierson High School production of 13 The Musical, with donations in excess of expenses will be given to the Literature Live! program at Bay Street Theater. The production is presented to by Pierson's IB Theatre students.

Five years ago, when Pierson High School current Juniors and Seniors were only in 6th and 7th grade, Pierson's Middle School Theatre Department put on "13 The Musical" directed by Paula Brannon. They instantly fell in love with the show, and are so grateful that Ms. Brannon is flying out from California to help us recreate this musical!
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is a challenging academic program that has been implemented at Pierson. A graduation requirement of the IB Program is to complete a CAS Project, CAS being short for Creativity, Action, and Service. The CAS Project is meant to get students out into their towns to show that they are a valuable part of the community as well.

Students involved with the Theatre Department as well as the IB Program have joined together to get this production up and running for their CAS Projects. Each student fulfilling a different role, ranging from directing and producing, to fundraising and marketing.

The IB Program students include:
Anna Schiavoni
Reilly Rose Schombs
Yanni Bitis
Graham DiLorenzo
Thomas Lawton
Eva Doyle
Ella Knibb

Seats may be reserved for "13" at the Pierson High School office or before the performance at the school. Tickets for "The Great Gatsby" are available at baystreet.org or 631-725-9500.
