Ridley College Student Maddie H. Earns Sears Award of Distinction

Ridley’s entry in the 2011 Sears Drama Festival was a challenging Canadian play by Sharon Pollock entitled ‘Blood Relations.’ It is based on the historical trial of Lizzie Borden, a woman brought to trial but ultimately acquitted for the murder of her parents in the sleepy town of Fall River in the summer of 1892.

With a cast and crew of 10 Ridley students, ‘Blood Relations’ was performed at Welland Centennial School on Thursday, March 3 as part of the Sears Drama Festival. Maddie H. most fittingly earned a Sears Award of Distinction for her convincing and chilling portrayal of “The Actress” in the play. Congratulations go out to this amazingly talented and dedicated group who were involved in this production in addition to all their various sports and academic responsibilities.

  1. I have to say how very proud both myself and her Grandfather are, of Madeleine
    She has done so well at Ridley.
    also it is great to have this facility, being able to track her progress in this way makes up for being so far away. So thank you Ridley.
