Academy Street Elementary School fourth-grade students in Carrie Almskog’s class collaborated with Nancy Celentano’s kindergarten class for a theatrical performance of the classic story “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” on April 20. After months of rehearsals and preparations, the students premiered the show for family members and the entire school community to enjoy. This year’s production enabled the students to practice their collaborative learning and reading comprehension skills, and introduced them to various aspects of the theater, including how to follow stage direction.
