A Killer Story written by Dan Harder and starring International High School Alumna Lauren Tannenbaum
Posted 03/17/2014 09:00PM
Several members of the French American International School community have collaborated on this project, including:

* Michelle Haner (Head of Arts at French American) - Director
* Marie Cartier (Class of 2010) -- Stage Manager
* Brad Cooreman (Theater Teacher at French American)-- Sets
* Martha Stookey (Theater Teacher at French American)-- Costumes
* Dan Harder (Head of English at French American) – Playwright

To add to this community of collaborators, International High School alumna Lauren Tannenbaum will be among the cast. A native San Franciscan, Lauren currently lives and acts in New York City.

After a successful six week run at the Marsh Berkeley and then a ten day stint at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, A Killer Story is back – and so are the “killer” cocktails. If you did not get a chance to see the show last year or if you’d like to see it again, please come to a “scored performance” at the historic Mechanic’s Institute Library on Wednesday, March 26th and Thursday March 27th. See the exciting new cast and live musical accompaniment by the composer of the play’s original score.

“A noir tour de force! Highest Rating!” (Lee Hartgrave, beyondchron.com 4/12/13)

“…a provocative message about the power of fear and conjecture.” (John McMullen, Daily Berkeley Planet, 4/26/13)

"Research shows that younger children have a superior ability to learn a second language and that bilingual students tend to outperform their monolingual peers."
