A Mother Goose Comedy
The Mary E. Dardess Elementary School (MED) Drama Club presented A Mother Goose Comedy Friday, March 31 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 1 at 2:00 p.m. in the Chatham Middle School auditorium, Woodbridge Avenue, Chatham.
In this musical play by Patricia Barry Rumble for Pioneer Drama Services, and performed by the 4th and 5th graders in the club, our Mother Geese presented old stories with a new twist. Working for several weeks after school, the Drama Club students updated the script and added original songs plus amazing choreography. The club talked about all aspects of putting together a show from writing scenes to casting to blocking. The Drama Club also worked on props and sets, and several students will be working backstage during the performance.
The production was directed by Emilia Teasdale with musical direction by Kristen Van Note, choreography by Barbara Fuss, costumes by Lorraine Bulson, and sets and props by J Lou Sotherden. All performances were free and open to the public.
