UIL One Act Play Performance
Bellaire High School Red Bird Production's  presents Wellesley Girl in the BHS Auditorium February 28th and 29th at 6:30pm. Tickets are $8 and $5 for students. 

Wellesley Girl by Brendan Pelsue is a play that takes place in the future - a politically fraught future - that resonates with many of the issues pressing on American society today. The play concerns itself with the specific relationships of the characters and the ways in which they all survive in this new America, where every adult is a member of congress and they have no knowledge of or communication with anyone outside. Our company of actors and technicians has worked diligently and passionately to examine the issues facing this society and to bring it to life for you.
 
Bellaire Theatre Department will take the show to competition next week!
 
The show runs approximately 38 minutes and contains mature themes.
 
They'd love to see you there!
