NEW DATE: Riverhead Thespians Recreate ‘High School Musical’

High School Musical Graphic thumbnail184215
UPDATE: Due to forecasted rain, the outdoor viewing event has been rescheduled for June 5 at 9 p.m.

With special permission from Disney, the Riverhead High School Blue Masques have produced their own film version of “High School Musical.” The production will be presented to the community at a special outdoor viewing on the Riverhead High School football field on Friday, June 4, at 9 p.m. Virtual showings will be streamed on June 4 and 5 at 7 p.m. and June 6 at 2 p.m.

In addition to the film’s premiere, there will be a special performance by local musicians Roadtrip. Both in-person and virtual viewing tickets are $10. Tickets must be purchased in advance. In-person viewing is subject to social distancing guidelines and all guests must wear a mask. Bleachers will be available on a first-come basis. Guests can also bring a chair for field seating.

The students began producing the film earlier this school year, working hard with director Laura Nitti and 2019 Riverhead alumnus Jacob Nitti to record and mix all of the sound for the movie. Senior Madison Stromski worked tirelessly to film and edit the entire show with the help of production assistant Caitlyn Brennan. Students Morgan Stromski and Dave Loddengaard created the lighting design for stage work utilizing the school’s new lighting equipment.

The production was made possible through the generous support of the Riverhead community, including the Friends of the Blue Masques parent group. The screen was paid for by FOBM and provided by Diane Tucci of Main Street Productions. The district assisted in the coordination of school space for the filming of scenes.

WISE Women

Students participate virtually in Stony Brook University’s Women in Science and Engineering program thumbnail184228
Riverhead High School science students in grades 10-12 culminated their yearlong participation in Stony Brook University’s Women in Science and Engineering program with a virtual research presentation on May 4.

During the presentation, the high schoolers spoke about the scientific research and experimentation they had conducted with mentors as part of the WISE program. Their research included the effects of diffusion, bacterial culture, DNA collection, the importance and use of solar energy, and the relationship between fear conditioning and activation of cells.

“Despite being limited to virtual meetings due to the pandemic, these young women were able to expand their horizons and present their research to friends and family,” said advisor Paul Paredes, adding, “We hope that future programs will resume with live trips and invite young women interested in science and engineering to participate in this long-running program.”
