Survey Says… “Art Attack” is a Futuristic Feat!

Grade 5 students on the Bolles Lower School Whitehurst Campus took audiences on a trip through time in “Art Attack,” an original play written and directed by lower school drama teacher Daniel Austin with music by lower school music teacher Beth Zerkowski.

The comedy takes place on the set of the fictional “Past Forward” television show in the year 2049. The show’s hosts invite humans to play a variety of classic gameshows with robots programmed to bring famous artists to life, from Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh to Henri Matisse and Georgia O’Keeffe. The humans and robots play “Fine Art Fued,” “Maestro Match Game,” “The Price Tag is Right” and more – but the show takes a turn when the robots orchestrate an “Art Attack” on the humans that can only be stopped by their mother programmer, Becky.  

Special thanks to Whitehurst Campus art teacher Elizabeth Miron for her artistic direction and Andy Payne for serving as the technical director for the show, which took place March 17 in McGehee Auditorium on the Upper School San Jose Campus.
