Bishop DuBourg High school puts on a wonderful play, full of emotions, according to this student review by The Cappies, the student thespian and critical review program in the region.
By Tiffany Vonderahe of Northwest School District The terrible misfortunes that surround everyone, including earthquakes, hurricanes and tornados, are addressed in this play as “Acts of God.” The play starts with a window, a simple window with Maria, Gibbons, explaining the window. It ends with the lights dimming, and the sirens starting. Bishop DuBourg High school puts on a wonderful play, full of emotions.
