The Pirate

Christian Duff, an actor, singer, and Pirate editor, is a 17-year-old BCHS Senior. She has been involved in Student Council, the National Honors Society, Central Kentucky Youth Salute, the Berea Community Middle and High School Drama Department, and the high school choir.

One of Christian’s greatest passions is drama. She has been performing in different drama productions for 13 years: “It all started… with church plays and then it… progressed from there.” Through programs here at the school, she’s acted in upwards of 14 productions with her best friend, another BCHS senior, Thomas Brock. When asked if Christian had impacted his career in theater, Brock responded, “Influence wise I don’t have the biggest bout of self-confidence as other people do, so whenever I audition for roles around, she will force me to go... she’s my hype man and vice versa”.

Over the years, Thomas and Christian have played in many productions directed by BCHS English teacher, Mrs. Jody Flara. When asked about Christians contribution to the High School Drama Department, Flara responded:                       

I have been immediately impressed with Christian and her theatrical ability ever since she came to the theater department four years ago. Since then she has had major roles in such musicals as Bye, Bye Birdie and Into the Woods. She starred in Arsenic and Old Lace, Steel Magnolias, and Father of the Bride. She is capable of playing diverse roles and is extremely devoted to rehearsals and productions. Christian has been a joy to work within our Drama program. I believe Christian has a passion for the stage and an underlying talent for performing. As she progresses to higher levels of theater during her college career, she will sharpen those skills and may one day reach stardom.

Her first performance of the 2019-2020 school year, The Father of The Bride, was on October 17th, 18th, and 19th here in BCHS.
