The Oak Bluffs School performed the original musical "Bluebeard" this past weekend. Written and directed by Donna Swift and Shelagh Smilie, and musical director Brian Weiland, the show was based around Mary Stephanie, played by Ashley Girard; Henri, played by Mitch Lowe; the mother, played by Ashley Gwynn; Mary Elizabeth, played by Sarah Swift; Bluebeard's assistant, played by Taylor McNeely; and Bluebeard, played by Devon Lodge. A host of ghosts and townsmen completed the cast of the one-act play, which showcased ten musical numbers.
