Berkley High School Presents its Fall Play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Student actor portrays child with Autism with guidance from peers
Berkley, MI | Berkley High School’s BeDrama Club is proud to present their Fall show, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to the community. Performances are November 16-18, in the Berkley High School Auditorium (2325 Catalpa, Berkley).
November 16-17, 7 pm
November 18, 3 pm
The story concerns a mystery surrounding the death of a neighbor’s dog that is investigated by young Christopher Boone, a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and his relationships with his parents and school mentor. Christopher not only takes up the mystery of who killed Wellington (the dog), but in his investigation, uncovers so many new facts about his own life. Struggling relationships, investigating deaths, navigating travel and taking care of his pet rat, Toby, are at times more than this hero can handle.  Seen and experienced by the audience through Christopher’s eyes, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a visual and multimedia overload of information.
BeDrama is proudly partnering with the Berkley School District Peer to Peer and Special Education programs to include as many students in the process of rehearsing the play. Their goal is to provide the most respectful and appropriate portrayals of students with ASD, their peers, parents, teachers and the world around them. BeDrama have convened a Curious Incident Panel Forum consisting of two students with Autism, two peers, two moms, two dads and two teachers to meet with (and without) the cast, watch rehearsals, advise the actors and help develop a sensory friendly performance for opening night.
Tickets are available at the door and online: www.our.show/bedrama/curiousincident
Students & Seniors: $5 online / $10 at the door
Adults: $10 online / $15 at the door
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time adapted from the best-selling book by Mark Haddon by Simon Stephens.
