7th Graders Write and Perform Original Play
Students in our 7th Theater class performed their original play, The Tale of Two Planets, in our cafeteria on December 13th, 2017. The play tells the story of two families, one that lives on Mars and one that lives on Venus. Venus and Mars are mortal enemies and often fight each other with soccer moves and dance battles. Jazmine, a young girl from Venus, and Chris, a young boy from Mars, meet while flying around and exploring Space. They decide to try to stop the fighting and make their families realize that they are more alike than they are different. Our students wrote, designed, produced, and performed this wonderful production.
