Drama Project: The Birds Ready to Take Flight

By Reed Gabhart, Head of the Goshen Campus

The Birds are ready to soar!

If you’ve been in the Main Amp after school in the past month or so, you might have wondered about the cacophony of squawks and whistles emanating from the stage. They are an integral part of the SFS Drama Project’s spring production The Birds!  This ancient Greek comedy written by Aristophanes is a challenge for Middle School students. But in the capable hands of Associate Drama Project Director Lon Church, it is surely coming to life. Beaks, feathers, comedy, classical and modern music, clueless gods, and even a little romance will all collide beginning next weekend!

Showtimes are Friday, March 25th, Tuesday, March 29th, and Wednesday, March 30th at 6:30 p.m., with a Saturday, March 26th 2:00 p.m. matinee. As we did last year with Oliver, we are selling tickets in advance (in the case of sellouts) through Bidpal. The link to purchase tickets is here

The Birds has little to offend young audiences, but it is recommended for students in grades 4th and up. Please join Lon, me and our cast and crew of 40 students as we prepare for another SFS spring spectacle!

5thGradeGovCupAlso, we found out Monday how our 5th grade Governor’s Cup team did last week at regionals! Our team came in 5th out of 13 teams competing, which is fantastic! Kudos are also in order to the following for their individual performances:

Jack Rutherford – 1st place in Social Studies & 3rd place in Math
Amelia Gorman – 5th place in Language Arts

Congratulations to Coach Misty Chanda and our successful 5th grade team!

As a heads up: third-quarter progress reports will be available next Wednesday for you to go over with your child!

Lastly, a BIG thanks to parents Kate Davis and Lisa Francis for chaperoning the Middle School LISC dance at Walden School last Friday night! Lisa said all went well and one of the “highlights” was 6th grader Chase Jones winning a “dance-off” contest! A Wyvern with moves!
