Upper School Thespians on Fire in "Fahrenheit 451"

Congratulations to the Upper School cast and crew of Fahrenheit 451 for two wonderful shows on Nov. 17 and 18, 2023, in the Louisa Performing Arts Center!

Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper ignites. Montag, a fireman, has worked as a civil servant for ten years burning books. Lately, he has become increasingly unsure about what he is doing and about his vegetable-like existence. It is not until he meets 16-year-old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now, he must choose between continuing his nonexistent existence and risking everything for the right to think.
