On Wednesday, January 11th, Sward staff and students enjoyed a dress rehearsal performance by our very own Sward Drama Club. Under the guidance of Mrs. Collura, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Bishop, 4th and 5th grade students in the Drama Club prepared, practiced and finally performed their long awaited show "The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf" which had originally been scheduled for before Winter break but was postponed due to illness prior to break. The Drama Club consists of students in both 4th and 5th grades who have an interest in theatrical arts, student actors learn to devlop a sense of stage presence, how to project their voices, how to work as a team which in turn builds confidence, problem-solving skills and teaches students how to work under pressure.
The students and staff gathered in the Sward main gym for the performance, even students from our Pre-K classes were mesmerized by the on-stage production. The actors and actresses were entertaining in their roles as storybook characters as they told the story of the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf. The show also had an evening performance for Sward family and friends. It was live streamed via Twitter and can be viewed by clicking this link if you'd like to watch the show for yourself. A special thanks to all the hard work by our Sward actors and stage technicians for putting together such a wonderful show and also to Mrs. Collura, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Bishop for all your time working with these budding actors and actresses. Bravo Sward Drama Club!
