Fall Semester Production

Date: September 10, 2013 Author: Christy Davis Categories: 3 - 4, 5 - 6 0

Hello all actors, actresses, stage hands and parents!  Welcome to the 3rd – 6th grade production.

We will be performing ‘Folk Tales from Around the World’.  The selections include a fool’s tale from Mexico, a fairy tale from Romania, a trickster tale from India and a hero tale from China.  Two of the tales include magic in true fairy tale fashion, applying magical attributes to an animal or object.  For example, we have a pig prince and a chinese dragon tormented by a magic reed pipe.  If you have any concerns or would like to preview the plays, please let me know.   I would be happy to discuss the selections with you.

In the following weeks, we will be assigning parts, memorizing lines, blocking and creating the set.  Mrs. Jacobowski will be leading the visual artistic expression.  The students will be creating a mountain, river and various exchangeable set pieces.   Further posts will list the cast assignments, props, and costume ideas or needs.

Mrs. J and I are so excited to work with the 3rd – 6th grade students.  They are so creative and have already been instrumental in bringing the production to life.  Thank you for allowing us this opportunity.

Mrs. Davis
