Field honoured by former high school

The Mrs. Doubtfire star returned to the Birmingham Community Charter High School in California’s San Fernando Valley on Friday (12Nov10) to meet pupils and teachers and unveil the auditorium’s new plaque.

Field, who graduated from the school in 1964, made a speech during the unveiling ceremony and urged the youngsters to embrace the arts.

She said, “I want to say how lucky you are that this beautiful theater exists for you. Use it. Explore not only the world of language, the spoken word and that of storytelling – because that’s what we do up here on this stage, we tell stories – but use it to explore you.”
