A couple children ran to me to ask if they could bring out some chairs from the music room. Within minutes, many chairs were placed around, surrounding a clear section of the playground. They had one cushioned chair.

Imagine my surprise!
Then the announcements started. The children had made a play! There was an announcer, a narrator, and lots of actors. The whole thing was developed, written, and endlessly rehearsed - without one adult helper or guide.
They cleverly used what was already there for designing the stage. Pulling down a section of tree leaves made a good curtain.
Each child was introduced in turn before the action started. Samantha takes a bow as the narrator.
Here, three actors play children busy working at their desks. Their teacher (what a meanie!) puts them in detention, where they fall asleep. Then the action REALLY begins!
Here, the actors take a well-deserved bow to thunderous applause. The whole thing was quite amazing. Joanna, our resident playwright, gives this review: The play had a "fascinating plot line played out with skill and energy by the young stars". Bravo, everyone!
