BVHS Fall Play Harvey

Harvey, a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Mary Chase, is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd (Peter Som), and his best friend, Harvey -- a pooka, who is a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister, Veta Louise (Harlie Rader), and her daughter, Myrtle Mae (Anika Craft), determine to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. A mistake is made, however, and Veta is committed rather than Elwood! Eventually, the mistake is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood and the invisible pooka, which ends with Elwood appearing, voluntarily, at the sanitarium. In the end, however, Veta realizes that she loves her brother and his invisible his best friend just as they are, and doesn’t want either of them to change.

The BVHS Choral Department continues their excellence in performances at home and in many venues across the state. Congratulations to these wonderful ladies for representing BVHS so well!!



Buckeye Valley Visions wrapped up a hugely successful competition season by qualifying for their third straight finals competition on Saturday March 18th at Sheridan HS. In Division 2, Visions captured Best Vocals and 1st Runner-Up.

Visions were also awarded the highly coveted Best Show Design Award, chosen from the 17 schools in the competition. As if that’s not enough, out of more than 400 participating students, freshman standout, Peter Som, took Best Male Dancer Award!

Only the 6 highest scores from daytime competition qualify for the evening Finals Competition. After the daytime competition, Visions was sitting in 4th place, qualifying them for Finals. During the nighttime competition, Visions Singer/Dancers, Combo and Crew had their best performance of the season!!! BV moved from 4th Place in the prelims to finish 2nd Place in the Finals Competition!

What a wonderful representation of Buckeye Valley for the day and the entire season! Visions’ students worked extremely hard this year and that work paid off. The BV Community can be proud of their own BV Visions as they continue the excellence that has become identified with the BVHS Vocal Music program. Well done, students!!
