After some weeks of weighing in and great conversations at our year-end faculty meetings, we have settled on themes for the 2014-2015 academic year, and have made related decisions about the two major theatrical productions.
Magic and Journeys will be our twin themes for the year.
Though there will be several sub-themes for the younger students, amongst the 7-8s we will build all of our priorities and activities around these two. Over the summer, we will build our plans, class-wide projects, and reading lists. I can say that we will spend some time in the fall looking at utopias and dystopias--wonderlands and their opposites.
Speaking of wonderlands, here are our plays for 2014-2015: an original Alice with music, tentatively titled Go Ask Alice, which Karl and Josh will direct; and A Midsummer Night's Dream, which Joanna (hooray!) will direct.
