The past two weeks have offered the St. Michael’s theatrical audiences some wonderful viewing, as Mrs. Johnston’s young actors presented the culmination of their work in drama class.
Grade 3 Presents: A Chinese Tale
“Single Grain of Rice”
Last week, the 3rd grade presented the Chinese tale “A Single Grain of Rice”. The story about how a clever peasant convinced the royal family to let him marry the princess was entertaining and fun for all. Actors in both grades worked hard to learn lines and blocking, created interesting characters, collaborated to bring their scenes and stories to life, and gave very entertaining performances.
Grade 4 presents: African plays
“Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters” and “Why the Sky is Far Away”
This Thursday morning, the 4th grades enacted a pair of plays in conjunction with their study of the African continent. Mrs. Joubert’s class performed the folk tale “Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters,” while Mr. Tutino’s class offered the allegory “Why the Sky is Far Away.” Both plays were presented in the round, with creative staging and choreography, and actors looked fantastic in the African cloth costumes they had created in art class! We want to echo the audience’s enthusiastic applause and say once again – great job to all the actors!
