After weeks and weeks of hard work, the cast and crew have successfully put up Ravenswood Elementary's first ever Fall One Act Play! It has been a daunting process putting everything together and we certainly could not have done it without a mountain of help from teachers, parents, and students. Every element of this play is a testament to the collaborative power of theatre. The set and puppets were built with the art teacher, Ms. Kitty, and a team of 6th graders. The costumes were made possible by parents, teachers and the skill of the students themselves. One of the parents, Larry Coble came in to save the day this week and helped us figure out our new sound technology that the gym teacher, Jeff Switzer, purchased with the help of parents and community members through Donors Choose. Being a part of a community that holds such high regard for the Arts is absolutely amazing. Stay tuned for more pictures of the process and final show.
In just over a week the hard work and immense creativity of this entire school community will be presented on stage! I could not be more excited. The students have been working tirelessly to memorize their lines, choreograph their puppet movements, build the last pieces of the set... it is a rush to see how well they are all doing. Rehearsals have been going pretty well and I know it is all going to come together beautifully. I want to give a huge thanks to Marc Garcia who was able to fill in for my in my absence last Friday. He did a wonderful job of keeping the rehearsal process smooth and productive. Also, Molly Mehl, who you may recognize as the teacher of one of our Tuition Based Pre-K classes, has been present during the whole rehearsal process helping the students with the play and organizing the puppeteers.
Next week, we'll bring in all of the technical aspects and run the show until it is audience ready. We are almost there and I could not be more pleased with the amount of progress the students have made in such a short amount of time. Good job everyone!!
