It's an yearly affair.
Darling son KW's teacher, will put up a play every year. The kids practiced hard and performed for parents. As part of their rehearsal, they performed for invited students from other classes. Last year's plays were all about Soup, in conjunction with the National Soup Month. This year's theme was : Fables and Fairy Tales. Last year, KW played a soldier in "The Stone Soup", while this year, he was the Narrator of the play "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg".
Although the plays were 5 to 10 minutes each, it was an enjoyable experience, sitting there and watching the kids performed. Some were nervous, while a handful, were enjoying themselves and having fun while performing. The kids were each given a big cardboard, and they were to "design" the costume for their role on their own. So we saw three different elephants, three pigs, a wolf, an ant, a bee, a sheep, a mole, a duck, and of course, the Goose!
It was really hilarious when the farmer killed the Goose. This scene was carried out behind the art easel. We didn't see the killing, which was good, cos I'm not for violence and killing. The farmer and the Goose went behind the art easel ... the Goose screamed, and the next thing we saw, was feathers flying out from behind the easel. It was enough to get group of parents laughing.
A big thank-you to the Farmer, his wife, the Goose, the hen, the cow and the sheep, and our darling Narrator KW, for providing us with a morning of fun and laughter! And a big thank-you to the teacher too, for providing an opportunity for the kids to perform. I'm sure it was a great learning experience for the kids!
