Scenes From the 2014 BHS Pep Rally

BHS held its annual Pep Rally this morning and the word amongst the students and staff is that it was the best one ever! Seniors TJ Horgan and Tommy Bezreh (pictured in the red suits below) did an awesome job leading the rally through songs, dances, balloon popping, pie eating, hula hooping, cheer contest, and ultimately the faculty flash mob (video below). It was great to see everyone having a great time and build on the tremendous school spirit that we have at BHS, ending with the whole gym chanting BHS!

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving, enjoy the couple of days and time with family and friends!

Enjoy some pictures, and flash mob video, below:

BHS Presents "Almost, Maine"

The performing arts department at Burlington High School is pleased to announce the performance of John Carini’s romantic comedy, “Almost, Maine.”  Performances will take place in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center of Burlington High School on December 5th and 6th at 7:30 pm and December 7th at 2:00 pm.

Described by the New York Times as "a comedy comprising almost a dozen two-character vignettes exploring the sudden thunderclap of love and the scorched earth that sometimes follows,” the romantic comedy is a favorite of community and high school theatre groups.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

Directed by Stephanie Diozzi, the romantic comedy features Ivy Saltsman as Ginette/Waitress, TJ Horgan as Pete/Steve, Rachel Seeley as Glory/Woman, Tommy Bezreh as East/Phil, Xavier Little as Jimmy/Dave, Miranda Russo as Sandrine/Marcy, Laura Frustaci as Marvalynn/Suzette, Anastasia Kranz as Gayle/Rhonda, Pat Hoarty as Lendall/Randy and Harry Lane as Chad/Man.

Tickets for “Almost, Maine,” priced at $15 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens, can be purchased online at, by phone at 781-A-FUN-TIC (781-238-6842) and at the door. Fogelberg Performing Arts Center is an accessible facility and is located at 123 Cambridge Street, Burlington, Massachusetts.
