officialacademicvarsitylettersofficialPress release from Red Bank Regional High School

At its February board meeting, the Red Bank Regional (RBR) Board of Education honored its highest achieving academic stars with their very own Varsity Letter. The tradition began many years ago when the school district sought to encourage and honor academic excellence the same way it honors its top athletic achievements, with a varsity letter. In order to earn an Academic Varsity Letter, students must maintain a straight A in every marking period of the preceding year (September of 2014 through June of 2015 in this case).

According to Red Bank Regional High School Guidance Director Dawn Kaszuba,The overall GPA average for this group was 98.04. They are not content to get the 90, but rather strive to achieve their very best…in many ways.

“In addition to being great students, these kids are also peer tutors, athletes and overall well-rounded and committed members of the RBR community.”

A LITTLE SILVER NIGHTMUSIK, AT RBR

AmadeusUPDATE: Due to the playoff schedule of Red Bank Regional’s undefeated football team, the school announced today a change to the published performance schedule for AMADEUS. New dates are Saturday November 21 at 7 pm, Sunday November 22 at 3 pm, and Monday November 23 at 7 pm.

As its Fall 2015 dramatic production, the Red Bank Regional High School Theatre Company will present an 18th century period piece that became a Tony winning 20th century hit on Broadway. Written by Peter Shaffer, Amadeus freely sketches a portrait of the young, brilliantly talented and boorishly behaving Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — as seen through the eyes and actions of his insanely jealous, revenge-obsessed fellow composer Antonio Salieri. The lead roles of Mozart and Salieri are played by Davis Bush of Millstone and Patrick Monaghan of Little Silver (left and right in photo), with the production marking the debut of RBR’s new drama director Reuben Jackson. The play goes up for three performances in the school’s auditorium, beginning Friday, November 20.

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

As the Spring 2015 student production at Red Bank Regional High School, the Academy of Visual & Performing Arts (VPA) and the Red Bank Regional Theatre Company will present Cole Porter’s timeless musical comedy Anything Goes. Going up Thursday through Saturday, March 26-28 at 7 pm (with a 3 pm matinee on Sunday, March 29), the production marks the last in a distinguished career for retiring RBR drama teacher and production director Joe Russo.

Taking place on a raucous London-to-New York ocean liner cruise in 1934, Anything Goes presents the age-old tale of boy-meets girl with ensuing complications that include stowaway stockbrokers, merry mobsters and bible-thumping burlesque queens. The vintage musical-comedy revue was fortified for its Broadway revival with a collection of enduring Cole Porter songs that include “You’re the Top,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” and the signature song, “Anything Goes.”
