Upcoming retreat offers shared creative journey

St. Hildegard of Bingen wrote, “We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a home. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.”

Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. They presented a Wax Museum to the school and their parents. Each character in the Oz Museum came to life and shared with audience their character using literary analysis and theatrical expressions. This project was designed to introduce the students to performing a memorized script in front of a live audience. The class had so much fun with their museum and can’t wait to see what book their teacher has in store for them next.
