Tales & Tunes from Mt. Olympus

Written by Alex Mitnick

Upper Elementary Performs Brand New Musical

The Upper Elementary students performed a brand new musical written by Mr. Mitnick! “Tales and Tunes From Mount Olympus” is a fun and exciting musical introduction to Greek Mythology. We meet Olympic gods and goddesses and explore some of the most famous myths including Pandora’s Box, Sisyphus and the Stone, and The Flight of Icarus. Learning about the different personalities of each deity and the moral of each story, we are both inspired and warned accordingly about some of life’s little secrets, allowing us to become more mindful of the many powerful psychological forces that exist inside of each of us.

The musical is a wonderful experience for the 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. Preparation for tonight began many weeks ago. The students have been very busy memorizing, singing, dancing and enjoying the process that brought them to this evening.

As the saying goes, it takes a village, and the Montessori community joins in to support the process and the musical performance. It is an annual event that everyone looks forward to. The Middle School students are responsible for backstage management including hair, makeup, lighting, costumes and props, and the Lower Elementary students kick-off the evening with their songs.

Special thanks to Mr. Mitnick, who wrote and directed this brand new musical; Mr. Silva, who choreographed the dances as well as designed the beautiful costumes and set; Ms. Miller, who provided keyboard accompaniment; and the Upper Elementary teachers who continue to inspire and support the students every single day.

Many thanks to Lisa Meisenbacher who took the photos for the slideshow below.
