Upper School Performing Arts Classes came to a rousing close on May 21, heralding the end of the school year, with the final of our triannual Sharing Days. Students and faculty from the Term Three classes gathered in Franklin Theater to share their newly explored skills and to enjoy the performances and work of others.
We heard a quietly stirring performance by the World Music class, led by Duncan Hardy and listened to the rhythmic beats of an enthusiastic Steel Drums class, led by Chris Beaven. Sarah Parisien’s Costume class paraded their costume designs for Animal Farm, each featuring a hand-made piece of neckwear. My very own Improvisation class took suggestions from the audience to create a scene that showed them on a road trip to West Virginia, an intriguing adventure! Fil Kotsishevski’s Film Class made several films, and they shared their collaborative effort linked here that riffs on the horror genre. All of this excellent work on stage and film was organized and stage-managed by Chris Fitze’s Stage Crew class in a seamless and entertaining production.
Cheers to all of our Term Three students and faculty! Next September we will return for our first Performing Arts term of the year. All students should look for information on signing up for Performing Arts Classes in the summer mailing packet, coming in August.
