Congratulations to the BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Drama Club and Performing Arts Subject Expert Teacher, Mrs. Sweet, for bringing Turandot to life this fall! This tragicomic, or Commedia dell'arte, play written by Carlo Gozzi even inspired Giacomo Puccini’s most famous opera of the same name. Students, along with faculty and staff, sparked the stage in this three act performance.
Family drama, secret identities and many laughs-what more could you want from live theatre?
Take a peek at the performance below!
The Speech and Debate students at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley made their school and TheGolden State Academy proud this year with their strong performances at the John Schamber Invitational, a respected and recognized competition at the University of the Pacific, which has been taking place for over twenty years.
Clubs and athletics are an important aspect of a student’s experience at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. We rely on direct student input to guide the extracurricular offerings that the school provides - first by surveying their interests, and later by encouraging them to develop programs where they see a need.
We believe that participation in these activities helps our students build friendships and cultivate team building and leadership skills, promote overall health, and explore their individual interests and potential.
