CBNA Theatre To Present The Birds:
A Modern Adaptation By Don Zolodis
Looking for a little humor to lift your spirits this winter?
Then the theatre students of Coe-Brown Northwood Academy have
just the cure, as they present The Birds: A Modern Adaptation by
Don Zolodis on March 9, 10 at 7 pm and March 11 at 2 pm in the
Gerrish Gym on the CBNA Campus in Northwood.
Based on Aristophanes’ comedy first performed in 414 B.C., The
Birds: A Modern Adaptation tells the story of two miscreants who
are fed up with a world of insurance salesmen and petty problems
and flee to the kingdom of the birds for a simpler life. While
living there, the two scheme up a financial jackpot that could
turn the bird’s land into a powerful utopia. Their only
obstacle: the wrath of the gods. A hilarious and satirical look
at politics, religion and the foolishness of mankind that
revives and revamps Aristophanes’ classic comedy.
Senior Joseph Guptill and sophomore Ian Gollihur playing
miscreants Eulpides and Pithetaerus respectively, lead an
enthusiastic cast of thirty-one students including seniors
Cassandra Barnhart, Marissa Gast, Arianna Jones and Kelsey
Wallace; juniors Sandra Black, Erin Boodey, Zachary Helm, Nina
Laramee, Jacob Lock, Cailinn Monahan, Kayla Pollak, Alyssa
Reiff, Allison Rose, Julia Sommer and Courtney Snow; sophomores
Braelin Ash, Dylan DeTrude, Brian Downer, Mackenzie Flanders,
Cassuarina French, Cooper Leduke, Cody Peck and Madison Rollins;
and freshmen Patrick Helm, Connor Nowak, Abbi Pelletier, Caitlin
Reynolds, Rylee Rogers and Lauren Rose. The production is
directed by faculty member Elizabeth Lent with assistance from
faculty member Kolby Hume.
