About The Bringham Review
North Hills High School Drama Club will present the first-ever performance of the comedy “The Bringham Review” on Nov. 17 to 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the North Hills High School auditorium. A special free senior citizen matinee will be held on Nov. 19 at 1:30 p.m. Written by North Hills alum Rob Speer and Kevin Richey, “The Bringham Review” tells the story of The Bringham Inn. The inn is well past its prime, but it remains home to some of the most interesting characters in town. When they get news that a reviewer is coming to write an article on their quaint hotel, they see an opportunity to fix all of their problems in one weekend. The only question—how do they hide the hotel’s, and their own, many flaws to get a good review? Will they get the review they’ve all been hoping to have, or will the reviewer see through their plots and schemes? Tickets for the evening productions are $6 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased at the door for all performances. Senior citizens who reside in North Hills School District may attend the matinee for free on Nov. 19 at 1:30 p.m. by reserving a ticket. To reserve a senior citizen matinee ticket, contact North Hills School District Activities Coordinator Chelle Zimmerman at 412-318-1438 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
