Conservatory Lab Goes to the A.R.T.

Snow Queen talk backHans Christian Andersen’s  fable, The Snow Queen, came alive on December 20th for all students from K1 through 5th grade to provide a marvelous, seasonal, cultural adventure!  Conservatory Lab students and chaperones filled the seats of the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) for this performance.  The fun started well before the performance, however, as A.R.T. education staff and actors (in full costume!) guided the students through crafts and movement activities before the play.  By the time the play began, everyone had made a snowflake and a rose.Snow Queen with students The narrators told us to be prepared to wave these items later in the play when requested.  The students were entranced by the story, the sets and the performances.  The staff at the A.R.T. was hugely impressed by the students’ engagement and delighted in their enjoyment of the performance.  We are sure to be asked back!  Thank you to all families who contributed to the success of this event – chaperones and scholarship ticket money were in abundance and made this whole school field trip a success!
