Warwick students bring "Pocahontas" to life
Submitted By Kari Martell
Over 60 Warwick Elementary School students practiced singing, dancing and acting for three months and made their debut performance in the musical "Pocahontas" on Friday, March 22. This group of talented kids gave it their all, bringing the non-Disney version of the heroic actions of one young American Indian girl to life on stage.
The stage was populated with settlers, Algonquin Indians, animals, forest spirit dancers and a chorus, all backed up by a crew of student technicians who kept the lights and sound going. Second grade teacher April Bishop directed the performance, was supported by parents and teachers who volunteered to do everything from painting the special forest backdrop, making props, selling flowers at the performance and buying pizza for the cast party.
Congratulations on a job well done!
