Imagine, being a kid and seeing some of your favorite stories come alive before your eyes! Next week, Speech and Theatre class will be doing that same thing for the Frank Layden Elementary students.
The students have divided up into six groups and have chosen the stories they want to perform. Ashley Lock, Dakota Moore, and Jessica Flake will perform "Down on the Funny Farm." Buster Reddick, Kevin McCollam, and Kristen Redd will perform "The Grouchy Ladybug." Krista Whetzell and Bobby Hinderliter will perform "The Very Hunger Caterpillar." Kelsy Marlier, Ryan Zafuta, and Morgan Grisham will perform "Pete's a Pizza" and Kodi Hope, Tyler Albert, Brandon Wright, and John Austin will perform, "The Great Kapok Tree."
All of the students have a part in their performances. Everyone has to be a part of the play and get along with each other to make everything work.
Stefanoni says, "My goal was to engage them in a fun project that would not only combine speech skills and theater skills, but that would place importance on the district's emphasis this year on reading. As an added bonus, perhaps it will inspire younger students to become interested in Speech/Theater.”
