Upper Canada College’s Prep School fall plays were staged on Nov. 3 and 4 in Weston Hall.
The Grades 4 to 6 play is an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s BFG. It involves a girl named Sophie who’s whisked away in her bed and learns about the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) and the mysterious land of giants. The boys in the production explore the magic of dream-catching, problem-solving and how to have tea with a queen.
The Grade 7 play, Good Cop, Bad Cop, involves two rookie detectives grilling a motley crew of suspects and witnesses about a catastrophic street sign switch. Everyone from the high school mascot to a guy who may be Super Mario is pumped for information. And while these suspicious characters are combative, ridiculous and downright incompetent, none of them seems guilty. With the clock ticking and their jobs on the line, can this good cop and bad cop collar a suspect before it’s too late?
The plays were directed by Prep teachers Jennifer Harper, Carly Crippin and Peter Labancz. They were staged back to back from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
