DGN’s Bomb-itty of Errors selected to perform at Illinois High School Theatre Fest
For the first time in school history, a North High theatre production has been selected to perform at the Illinois High School Theatre Fest. Bomb-itty of Errors, North High’s varsity production, will perform at this year’s event.
The play is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors. It tells the humorous story of two sets of twins separated at birth, searching for their missing link. The production follows these brothers as they rap and rhyme their way through the show.
DGN’s Director of Theatre, Ariel Mozes, said of the announcement, “I am so incredibly proud of our students and so thankful for all of the support from administrators.”
Schools are chosen to perform after a rigorous selection process that includes students participating in a feedback session with a member of the play selection committee.
The IHSTF is a non-competitive theatre festival and one of the country's largest.
The event runs January 12–14, 2023, on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus.
