Ballard High School Playmakers tackle gun violence in ‘Bang Bang You’re Dead!’ and ‘Eric LaRue’
May 9-11 and 16-18, 2019
Bang Bang You’re Dead! was first produced at Thurston High School in Springfield, Ore., where a fatal shooting took place the previous year. It opens in character Josh’s cell after he has killed his parents and five classmates. The ghosts of the classmates demand to know why he killed them.
Eric LaRue is the story of Janice LaRue, the mother of Eric, a 17-year-old boy who shot and killed three of his classmates in school. Three months after Eric is jailed, Janice has not yet gone to see him or found a way to show herself in her community.
The cast features 19 BHS students, and the play is directed by Joe Lambright.
The performances will be on May 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 at Ballard High School, 1418 NW 65th Street, Seattle, Washington, 98117. The performances begin at 7:30 pm.

…to make the difference for one child in your school?
Every year in our community, hundreds of kids enter the foster care system. The critical shortage of foster care homes in our school district means that abused and neglected children are rarely able to stay in their original school when they enter foster care. As a result, children who must enter foster care lose not only their families, but also friends, teachers, tutors, counselors, administrators, bus drivers, food service workers and custodians.
For many of these kids, school is the only secure piece of their lives. You could be the best solution!
We are searching for a few families from your school to become licensed foster parents. Just in case a child in your school needs a home. You don’t have to be a superhero, or even save the world, but just maybe you could find the room to make the difference in the life of one child.
Attend orientation now! Get licensed and be ready to help when a student in our community needs a foster family. For information, please call 1-888-KIDS414 (1-888-543-7414).
