The Bravo Awards

The MDI Drama Bravo Awards and Activity Letter Ceremony and potluck supper is scheduled from 6:00-8:00PM on Wednesday, May 31st in the Higgins-Demas Theater and MDIHS cafeteria. All students who were involved in this year's productions as actors, techs or pit orchestra members and their 
families are encouraged to attend.

Just as looking forward to the future of the program is integral to our growth, we should always look back to the origins that brought us to where we are today. To that end, as we approach our 50th production season, we cordially extend an invitation to any MDI Drama alumni who would like to attend this year's ceremony.

  • MDI Drama Spring Plays 2017
        MDI Drama presents two spring plays, "Eurydice," by Sarah Ruhl, and Ken Ludwig's "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery," starting this weekend at Mount Desert Island High School. Both plays will be performed during the next two weekends.

        "Eurydice" is a modern reinterpretation in one act of the classic Greek myth of Orpheus, told this time from the perspective of his wife Eurydice, played by Mary Paola. Dominic Marino plays Orpheus and Jacob Sanner plays the Father. The members of the chorus are Bonnie Snyder, Rosie Avila, Dezi Zaman and Zach Uliano. Irene Choi plays the Nasty Man/Child. "Eurydice" is directed by Frank Bachman.

        "Baskerville" is a comedic two-act quick-change play of the classic Sherlock Holmes' story, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and features 38 separate characters. Eric Graves plays Sherlock Holmes, who, assisted by Dr. John Watson, played by Ethan Leonard, tries to prevent the murder of Sir Henry Baskerville, played by Sammie Park, and discover the truth behind the legendary, brutal fiend said to haunt the moors of Devonshire. The remainder of the roles are played by Desmond Reifsnyder, Anna Redgate, Eli Price and Grace "Rawl" Blackett. "Baskerville" is directed by Chris Dougherty.

        "Eurydice" opens on Friday, May 5 at 7 pm, with additional performances on Sunday, May 7 at 2 pm and Saturday, May 13 at 7 pm.

        "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery" opens on Saturday, May 6 at 7 pm., with additional performances on Friday, May 12 at 7 pm and Sunday, May 14 at 2 pm.

        Tickets are $8 (adults) and $5 (students and senior citizens) and will be available at the door.
