New BUHS Players production debuts May 27

BRATTLEBORO—The BUHS Players announce performances for their upcoming spring play, The Internet Is Distract Oh Look a Kitten! a comedy by Ian McWethy.

The producers call this show “a high-octane comedy that explores the rabbit hole of distraction we all go down every time we go online.”

The Internet Is Distract — Oh Look a Kitten! tells the story of Micah, who has only twenty minutes to finish their paper on The Great Gatsby, according to the website Playscripts. They “just need to check a few facts on the internet first.”

Unfortunately, the web is a “nefariously wacky place” where boxing cats and Facebook lurkers “threaten to take over Micah’s schoolwork, or worse. Will they finish their paper and escape with their life before the school bell rings?”

The cast includes Allison Ackerman-Hovis, Tess Bogart, Kyle Girard, Violett LaCroix, Meaghan Landin, Leo Mousseau, Michael Auerbach, Indigo Rosenzweig-Davidovits, Olly Sergi, Cyrus Smith, and Amar Vargas.

The show is directed by Michelle Page and Christopher Rose with Meghan Clark as the stage manager and Violett LaCroix and Mary Linney assisting with costumes and properties.

Performances will be held on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28 at 7 p.m. in the BUHS Auditorium. Tickets are $5 each and BUHS students and staff are eligible for one free ticket. For more information, visit
