Field Trip to Hadestown!

Q: What happens when Latin, theatre, and choir departments combine forces? 

A: An incredible, TONY-sweeping musical and a dynamite field trip! 

Latin 2, Latin 3, Latin AP, and select theatre and choir students hopped on BART this past Wednesday, escorted by Ms. Sterling (Latin, English), Ms. Shi (English), and Mr. Pukstas (Upper School Division Head) and traveled through the Underworld (AKA: BART), finally reaching the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco. There, the group settled in for a performance of Hadestownn -- a musical based on the Greco-Roman myth about Orpheus and Eurydice. 

Latin students study this myth throughout their careers in class. 

Can art stop death? 
Can it change the world? 
Can love? 

Bentley students pondered these questions while listening to award-winning, jazz and blues-inspired music. 

Favorite songs from the play:
Ms. Sterling: “Our Lady of the Underground”
Student: “Way Down Hadestown”
