Familiar Tale Takes the Stage

Academy Elementary School fourth-graders in Carrie Almskog’s class once again teamed up with Nancy Celentano’s kindergartners to perform a beloved musical for their peers and families.

This year’s production of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” enabled the students to practice their collaborative learning and reading comprehension skills, as well as introduced them to various aspects of the theater, including how to follow stage direction and work the lights and sound for the play.

The students worked with their teachers and Mrs. Anderson for several weeks leading up to their theatrical debut.
