Bay Ridge Prep 8th graders presented “Rogues’ Gallery”, a ‘Who Didn’t Do It?’ mystery by by Rachel Bublitz, Tyler Dwiggins, Patrick Greene, Elissa C. Huang, Ian McWethy, Jason Pizzarello, & Maria Pretzl. The show tells the story of two hapless security guards that must investigate who destroyed an art gallery’s prize sculpture – but every suspect caused mayhem that day! From would-be art thieves and confused tourists, to fumbling custodians and fiendish pranksters, rather than, “Whodunnit?”, the the better question is, “who didn’t?!”


The 8th graders, many of whom had never performed on the main stage, took on this very challenging show and thrilled audiences with their amazing performances. It was an incredible way for these students to end their time at Bay Ridge Prep Middle School!
