The lower school performed their musical, Bear Snores On, for parents, students and faculty earlier this month. Music Director, Deanna Rau was the creative spirit behind the musical and did an amazing job collaborating the talents of kindergartners, first and third graders.
Bear Snores On is originally a children’s picture book about a bear hibernating in his cave during the winter and all the activity going on around him. There were many roles for the students participating; snow dancers, animal dancers, instrument players, chanters and singers, narrators and eight main animal characters.
Six classes worked together to put on this spectacular performance. The dancing was lively and the music was catchy. It was clear that every student participating enjoyed themselves and spent numerous hours practicing.
