Helena Fairytale Tour!

On Friday April 17th, the Advanced Theater students went on tour to Helena Intermediate and Helena Elementary School to present stories to the kids. The first stop was to Helena Intermediate school where the Theater III students had adapted, cast, and directed 3 fairytales. These fairytales were to be presented with minimal set that we could carry with us to 300 3rd graders. The program was “Goldilocks” directed by Michelle L, “Godfather Dream” directed by Andrea A, and ended with “Rumpelstiltskin” directed by Logan S. We arrived, set up, and had a great time with the students as can be seen in the pictures below.

After the Intermediate school, we had to pack up quick to go to the Elementary school. Here, we were scheduled to break into groups of no more than 3 and to go to kindergarten classrooms and read/act out a children’s book. The kindergartners appreciated the visit as many had their big brothers or sisters come by and the high schoolers loved the trip down memory lane and seeing some old teachers. Below are some of the pictures from this event.

Once that was finished, we went to get lunch and support local Helena business with a quick trip to the Depot, where kids could reflect on their experiences and enjoy a bite to eat!
