At my school, we decided to have a middle school play as we are gradually expanding the theater program. We hose to do Stone Soup, my adaptation of the old folktale. I was to be the director.
We had weeks of rehearsal, working around cross country season (a number of the actors were runners) and the beginning of basketball season.
The students worked hard and did a great job, and the performances had audiences laughing and entertained. A success!
At the end of the Saturday (November 10) performance, the cast served the audience a soup dinner (provided by the families). A wonderful time.
Now, what do we do for the high school play in the spring - after last year's very successful Pride and Prejudice - and what to do next fall for the middle school play? Hmmm.
Pax et bonum
