Have you seen our nimble-fingered students folding squares of origami in beautiful paper cranes and wondered why? Well, the answer is the fall student production at the Reach. In a change from the usual fall musical, students from grades 3-9 will perform A Thousand Cranes, by Kathryn Schultz Miller, on November 19 and 20, 2010.
A cast and crew of thirty children are working on their lines, learning Japanese songs, exploring the differences in cultures, discovering history and the ravages of war, as well as folding more than a thousand cranes, adding their voices to the cry for peace in the world.
The staff and students at the Deer Isle-Stonington Elementary School will see a matinee performance of A Thousand Cranes on Thursday, November 18.
The public is invited to performances on Friday and Saturday evenings, November 10 and 20, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Reach Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available at the door.
