Easter is a right around the corner and that means students, teachers, parents and more will gather to see the Easter story come to life. Every year, fourth grade students in the lower school put on a play that tells the story of Easter from Jesus’ crucifixion to his resurrection. After weeks of rehearsals, students perform this show for family members, faculty and students of all grade levels on March 21st and 22nd.
Fourth grade teachers Fiona Owen, Sarah Kate Wilson and Brittany Knight help to put on the play and prepare the students for their roles. Owen said, “In preparation for the Easter Play, we choose parts very carefully to match the students’ preferences. We run lines together in the classroom after watching the previous year’s Easter play production. Finally, we guide the students with stage direction, voice projection, reaction, anticipation of lines and background knowledge.”
