This weekend Elise and Amy had the fun of joining the other Middle School students in performing the play "Keeper of the Tales." The play was a retelling of several stories from the 1001 Arabian-Nights.

Elise and Amy had small speaking parts, and front-row seats for the rest of the play as they posed as merchants at the bazaar

Elise (2nd from right) played the part of a rich merchant's servant
Barbara also had the delight of working with this group of 5 students weekly before the play, to help them to learn their lines and plot their scene. It was great to get to know some of the students, and having a small part in the process made the play all the more fun to watch.
We'll look forward to next year's production!
