Sixth graders take center stage with Greek Myths
Taking their turn in a Middle School tradition, 6th graders performed Greek Mythology Plays before their parents and guardians Nov. 16 in Thompson Hall.
As part of the curriculum, 6th graders apply their knowledge of Greek mythology to design personalized masks which, after weeks of cold reading and rehearsal, they use to perform the plays. The plays were directed by Middle School Theater Director Tara Corcoran ‘88 P ‘19.
