Dear Families, Partners, and Colleagues,

Please join me in giving a huge shout out to the cast and crew of “Radium Girls” for their first two nights of successful performances this week at Holyoke High School North!

The Holyoke High School Theater Company—under the direction of Theater & Media teacher Bevan Brunelle—still has one more show to perform, tonight beginning at 6:30 p.m. I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s a quick synopsis. “Radium Girls” is based on true stories of women who painted watch dials with luminous, radium-laced paint in the 1920s. The play deftly brings to life such themes as corporate greed, commercialization of science, oppression of women, and labor rights. Sadly, these issues still have a very real presence now, almost a century after the historical events depicted in this play took place. See the story below for more information about tonight’s performance.
