Fall Arts Festival – Jr. High Theatre

Tonight the Junior High Theatre program made history by performing in their first ever Fall Arts Festival.  This was a night of many firsts as nearly all of the performers had never acted in front of a crowd or even been on a stage before but they worked hard all semester on learning basic technique and overcoming their fears. All 3 classes performed reader’s theatre versions of childhood classics from ‘Fox in Socks’ to a series of Shel Silverstein poems.  Theatre Teacher Dave Coffman was quick to show praise on his new, would-be actors “I’m so proud of all these students, many of whom would not even get up in front of class in the beginning…they’ve come so far.”
