Upcoming Theater Performances

Have you ever wondered what would happen if all the fairy book stories and nursery rhymes were all mashed together to make one hilarious adventure? "Story Stew" will help revive your imagination! Alison Agnew and Mara Angelo have worked hard with the 5th-9th grade kids to create a theatrical event the entire family can enjoy.

In "My Backyard", watch the PK-4th graders discover the amazing wonders that can be found in their friends' backyards. Kara Hartman has worked tirelessly to help you discover ladybugs, pillbugs, hummingbirds and more. You will even see a famous sleuth and his trusty sidekick.

The date is set for Friday, May 9th. The time and place are TBA. You won't want to miss this!

Musical 2012 {By Esther Hartman, Student}

A couple of fridays ago our children performed their musical.
 

Under the direction of my one-time elementary teacher, Mrs. Sue Cline we practiced and practiced for months.
012 
We painted backdrops, crafted costumes, developed a powerpoint presentation, and memorized lines and songs. When finally the big night arrived, nerves crackled backstage minutes before curtain call.

(Rabbit ears never get old, right?)

But nerves in theater are a good thing, because when it came time to do their stuff, they were amazing.

018 
And afterward
006 

they could finally relax and shake all the silliness out.
008 

Enjoy a job well done,
011 009

and generally pat themselves on the back, and bask in the glow of a job well done. 
017 

I won't lie, it was a huge labor of love and it's good to have it in our rear view mirror. But what a wonderful experience for our kids and for us!

Special thanks to Mrs. Chaney for submitting all the wonderful photos.
