The show included:
a Chinese folk tale, “Tikki Tikki Tembo”
a Korean tale, “What We Plant, We Will Eat”
and one of the Grimms’ tales, “The White Snake.”
Mrs. Breland spoke to Claxton kindergarteners, 1st graders, and 2nd graders about the acting process and her students’ work in preparing the show and how to be a polite and appreciative audience. The students enjoyed the assembly with much laughter and curiosity.
The AHS actors also used some of the puppets that were created during a residency at the high school with Hobey Ford last spring for some of the animals in the stories. Claxton teachers got a chance to feel nostalgic (and old!) when we saw three former Claxton students on stage with the AHS troupe, looking very grown-up!
