UPDATE: Due to a continued statewide teachers work stoppage now going through at least Monday, the weekend shows have been canceled. Principal Mark DeFazio said refunds will be available at the school once the stoppage is complete.
ORIGINAL: Bridgeport High School's production of the Tony award-winning "Barnum" will be presented Feb. 23-25 at the school auditorium. The musical is based on the mid- to late-19th century life of P.T. Barnum, known as "The Greatest Showman on Earth." His mission and passion was to create a show starring outcasts of society. Cast in the roles of P.T. Barnum and his wife, Charity, are Derek Hess and Erica Cottrill with Jordan Kennedy Rea portraying the Ringmaster, Andrew White as Chester Lyman and Olivia Ferguson as Joice Heth.

Show times are 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24 and 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25. All tickets are $10. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Tickets can still be acquired at the school in advance today. BHS Principal Mark  DeFazio said anyone interested in purchasing a ticket can do so by calling 304-326-7122 through 3:30 p.m. this afternoon. If there is no answer, leave a message and he will return the call.
