TWO RECOGNIZED BY COLLEGE BOARD

AlexJohnAt the November Board of Education Meeting, Bedford High School Principal, Mr. Kevin Weber,acknowledged the achievements of two BHS students: John H.and Alex M. They were recognized by the College Board as National Rural and Small Town Scholars after scoring in the top 2.5% on the PSAT test given to students across the nation.


BHS Theatre Arts Presents "The Importance of Being Earnest""THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST" HAS BEEN POSTPONED... 

This Fall, the cast and crew look forward to putting on "The Importance of Being Earnest." Friendship and rivalry intersect in what is perhaps Oscar Wilde’s most enduring play. The Importance of Being Earnest critiques high society as the ridiculous lives of its aristocratic characters disrupt the landscape of Victorian England. Join the serving class as witnesses to the antics of Jack and Algernon, Gwendoline and Cecily, and Lady Bracknell. Cases of mistaken identity put Jack and Algernon in side-splitting peril, endangering their friendship and the devotions of their love interests, Gwendoline and Cecily. The more reasoned voices of Miss Prism and Dr. Chasuble get caught up in drama and absurdity while the truth (in the form of Lady Bracknell) makes its way to meet them all in the English countryside. The disorder that follows from the deception, rivalry, drama, and farce reveals just how important it is to be Earnest.

However, this production will not be performed in front of a live audience. This will be a virtual production for the cast and crew. Tickets to view the live performance can be purchased online.

RUNNING TIME:
90 minutes, with two five minute intermissions between acts.

LIVE STREAM PRICING:
Individual: $15.00
Family: $35.00
Tickets are non-refundable. Please note that COVID-19 developments could result in the cancellation of a performance.


DONATIONS ARE ALSO ACCEPTED ONLINE
The resources needed to bring our shows to the stage are immeasurable. The commitment of our volunteers and dedication of our staff and students keep the theatre alive. However, these productions would not be possible without the generous financial support they receive from the community they entertain. Due to the unprecedented times we live in, the students won’t have the reward of a live audience sharing their laughter this year, but you can still contribute to the magic of this and future productions with a donation. They appreciate your support and hope you enjoy the show.

Bedford's Kicking Mules Marching Band Still Superior

marching band in gymThe Bedford High School Kicking Mules Marching Band got their MSBOA Marching Band festival rating back from the judges and earned a "1" rating for the 7th year in a row! (And the 8th overall for Mr. Meggitt in his 9 years as band director.) Mr. Meggitt is especially proud of this year's superior performance because of the extra challenges presented by COVID. There was no band camp or camp for the drum majors. The band directors designed the performance to ensure safe spacing for the students during the entire show. The instruments have been outfitted with special bell covers and students received special mouthpiece sanitizer if applicable. All students wore masks except when actually playing and they got screened before each practice.

The actual festival rated performance was held at the Bedford Community Stadium on October 12th with an MSBOA official there to record the performance. In our area, only 8 marching bands participated in the festival with each performing individually. Once all the performances were complete, the adjudicators reviewed the recordings to assign the ratings which we returned on October 29th with the news of another Superior rating for the Bedford Kicking Mules Marching Band.
