This is the final week of our after-school theatre production workshop, and it’s been productive! For three Wedesdays, 20 5th-8th graders have shown up to build and paint props, design makeup and costumes, and create set elements for The Oddity, our Class 5-6 play, and the Class 7-8’s winter production of The Tempest. Our goal has been to practice production skills while having fun (check!), to make new friends (hope so!), and to contribute to the production of The Tempest and The Oddity (definitely!)

I am immensely grateful for the time and talents of Tabatha Tucker and Madrona Wienges, without whom this workshop would not have been possible.
