Congratulations to our fourth-grade performers in their return to the Campus Center stage.
ONE LAUGH AT A TIME: The Legacy of Lucille Ball is a story about determination, vision, and pushing boundaries. Lucille Ball did not start out to change the world, but in her journey to become a star, she revolutionized television, and paved the way for women in front of the camera, in business, and in the art of comedy.
This live theatre experience allowed our fourth-grade students to explore playwriting, improvisation, acting, directing, singing, dancing, and mime. Nancy Gold, Lower School Theatre Teacher designed the experience as a true ensemble project with students involved in every aspect of the show, including building the sets and costume pieces in the Makery and handling set changes during the performance.
