So incredibly happy for my former student, Emma Nelson! She will be making her film debut as Bee in Richard Linklater's film 'Where'd You Go Bernadette.' Bee is the daughter of Bernadette, portrayed by Cate Blanchett. The film is scheduled for release on March 22, 2019. We'll be seeing Emma on the red carpet soon!

Congratulations to everyone who made the cast for Station Middle School's production of The Addams Family! Kaitlin Tenbrunsel and alum Ella Beaubien will play the role of Wednesday. Bel Canto alums Rachel Nazha and Kailey Jeffs were cast as Morticia; Margaret Higgins will be Fester. Others will round out the ensemble: Jacob Cyhaniuk, Maggie Wydman, and Sophie Farmer. Should be a sell-out!
