EDIE, THE DANCING CRAB - The Premiere Event of the Season
After many weather delays, the day finally arrived for the BUGS After-School Program's Annual Expo at Johnston Square. The students were excited. Parents and family members were anxious. Friends were wondering what all of the talk was about. It was the first presentation of a children's play by the BUGS Students. The play was written by Mr. Algernon. The students put a great deal of hard work and time into memorizing the lines, knowing their blocking and learning about the elements of theatre. Ms. Rachel, the Art Teacher, was able to guide the students in making props, costumes, the set and set pieces. It was a real collaborative effort between Ms. Rachel and Mr. Algernon.
Ms. Rachel was able to have a photographer friend, also named Rachel, to come in and take photographs before, during and after the show. The actors were elated. They posed, smiled and surround one another with such pride and confidence.
After the show was complete, all of the actors received a standing ovation from the audience. They were filled with such confidence and self-esteem.
I wonder what the next play will be about. HMMMMM!!
Enjoy the video!!!
