Roma Amor – A Roman Comedy
Last Friday the children in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades presented the play, Roma Amor: A Roman Comedy. Over 100 people were in attendance for what was Escuela Caracol’s first full night theater performance. It was an exciting experience using our homemade light system in our large palm dome.
The play was written by Eugene Schwartz for the sixth grade (when Waldorf students study Roman history), and the fifth and sixth graders took the lead parts, while the third and fourth graders played supporting roles and helped with scene changes.The fifth and sixth graders have been preparing for over a month memorizing their lines, studying their characters, preparing their costumes, blocking scenes, and the third and fourth graders began helping in the last weeks. The performance truly benefited from all of their hard work and dedication. Thanks to everyone who came out to support them!
