Bay Farm Presents Annie Jr.

Friday, December 28, 2018

 

Dramatic activity is already a natural part of most children’s lives. At Bay Farm, we believe in nurturing this creativity. We help our students develop their unique voices by exploring meaningful, fictional situations with parallels to the real world. Through our wonderful theater program, children are encouraged to take on responsible roles and make choices -- to participate in and to guide their own learning.

We know that children benefit greatly from participating in drama. They gain poise, self-confidence, and the ability to speak in front of others. They learn patience while they are waiting for their cue. They learn to be supportive when they have a small role, and they learn that they cannot do it all alone when they have a bigger role. They learn to work as a team, take turns, and to cooperate. Drama gives children the opportunities to explore, discuss difficult issues, and to express their emotions in a supportive environment. It enables them to examine their own cultural values and those of others past and present. 

Bay Farm was proud to present Annie Jr. this December. Productions like Annie Jr. bring our community together in a meaningful way, celebrating the hard work and talents of our children. Here at Bay Farm, the arts have been a vital part of our community for nearly 45 years. During the regular school year, students K-8 engage in a minimum of three theatrical productions. This tradition touches the lives of every child we teach. Before the holiday break, students put on three amazing performances -- Bravo to the entire cast and stage crew!
