My son’s class, which is made up of 10 fifth and sixth graders, put on a production of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” a couple of weeks ago. They take drama very seriously at his school and they spent over a month rehearsing this for a couple of hours every day.
The production was set 400 years in the future so rather than a ship crashing on an island, a spacecraft crashed on the planet Illyeria. The sets, lighting, sound and costumes were amazing.
Of course none of this could have happened without some very dedicated teachers and volunteers. I decided to stitch them each a little remembrance. I included the spacecraft from their poster (taking off rather than crashing).
And yes, my son has caught the acting bug. He played Sir Andrew and he did an amazing job.
