Tales for Little Ones

The Drama 20/30 Class presented Tales from the World to Day Care children as their final project.

They all made masks and at the end of the presentation each child who attended was given a mask which they treasured.

The presentation involved many stories, dance and song. Chantal wrote Kira and the Elves. Barinidum and Louise sang. The Raven Story a story handed down by the Tsimshian tribe, The Spider and the Honey Tree from a West African collection of three stories titled Deep in the Bush Where People Rarely Ever Go and an original story by Amy Lafontaine Wesuhkechuhk and the Mouse were then shared as Brydon danced in between the stories. The last tale, The Bear who lost his Cave was written collectively by the whole class ending the presentation singing and dancing to The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

A magical spirit filled the theatre when the children attended and as a class we felt the power of imagination. A truly rewarding experience.

Read an appreciative thank you note from a former student who brought her daughter.
