The Upper Elementary operetta performed, Aesop’s Fables. This year’s wonderful operetta was comprised of eleven of Aesop’s moral tales of wisdom that have withstood the test of time. The students came alive as the many characters that inhabit these lively tales.
The operetta is a wonderful experience for students, enriching their public speaking skills and self-confidence. It is not only an immersion in the arts, but a chance to collaborate, try new things, and practice teamwork.
So many people helped to make this operetta happen for the students. Special thanks to Mrs. Light Wills, the wonderful Director, Mr. Silva, the choreographer of the dances, Ms. Miller, the piano accompanist and the Upper Elementary teachers who inspire and support the students every single day. The Middle School students were responsible for backstage management including hair, makeup, lighting, costumes and props andMr. Mitnick helped the Lower Elementary students get the evening off to a great start with their songs.
