Ripples Showcase at BRHS
posted: May 26, 2017

The Ripples Showcase was held on May 12th (Ripples Acts took a break this year). There were two very creative plays that were written and directed by the students. In 2018, Ripples Acts will return for its 80th year.
The show was emceed by Alexis Griffin. The Intermission Acts were performed by Edward Strickling.
The first play was Stack and Pack by Jarred Kilgore (above). Jarred came out before the start to explain that the script has a plot and several keys points throughout that the cast will attempt to "hit", but all in-between will be improv. This was a theme I have never seen at Ripples and it worked well for the troupe.
The second play was The Battle of The Budgets by Jasmine Murphy. This one also had an unusual topic, the current IPS closing of three high schools. Pretty serious stuff for a student play. (The one I wrote in 1978 was Battyman, a parody of the 1966 Batman TV show!) It was a moving performance and I asked Jasmine to allow me to publish a piece of the lyrics.
This is not a game man, these are our lives.
We said, "This school is like home for us, Dreams are born within these walls.
Stop this reconfiguration!"
This is a new generation. We are going through things, you can't even relate to.
What should we do? Our school is going to close,
We are all alone, speaking from the floor.
It seems hopeless, and there's no way to stop them.
Is this truly the end?
