Speech, movement, music, and literature come together in the annual class play.
Young children speak the lines together in chorus until third grade, when they are ready to take on individualized roles and stand alone before an audience. Students take on increasingly complex parts through the grades and work together on sets, costumes, and lightning.
Plays change from year to year yet always support the curriculum. Recent productions include:
Grade 1: Snow White and Rose Red
Grade 2: A Michaelmas Play
Grade 3: Esther, the Queen Who Saved Her People
Grade 4: The Misadventures of Thor
Grade 5: The Odyssey
Grade 6: Roma Amor (A Roman Comedy)
Grade 7: Galileo by Bertolt Brecht
Grade 8: A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
