4/21 Well, Ms. Gervais, the actors, and I are having a great time in rehearsals for Welcome to the Jungle! This musical is based on Aesop's fable, The Lion and the Mouse. If you haven't already done so, pick up a copy of Aesop's Fables; they are wonderful stories about animals with human qualities who learn important lessons - usually the hard way! (isn't that really the way we all learn?) Behind the Scenes students are designing and building African inspired masks for the actors. Liz Guzinsky, an amazing artist, is working with the students to design and create the masks. The show will be performed May 15th and 16th; everyone is invited!
