Fall Multi-Arts Assembly Showcases Creativity, Teamwork, and Confidence

November 07, 2023

At Charles River School, leadership starts sooner and childhood lasts longer.  At the fall Multi-Arts Assembly on Friday, November 3, leadership and the joy of childhood were on full display.

The assembly included 12 scenes featuring each and every member of the 7th- and 8th-grade classes. Each student showcased teamwork, talent, and public speaking skills as they played their parts. Families joined us for a morning chock full of laughter and delight.  7th- and 8th-graders have been working on their roles twice a week for the last two months and balancing learning their lines and characters with full plates of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Our Otters performed a selection of roles from musicals and plays.

The schedule was as follows:

  1. “Opening Night” from Peter Pan Goes Wrong
  2. “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast the musical
  3. “The King” from The Little Prince
  4. “You’re an Ogre?!” from Shrek the musical
  5. “The Beast” from The Sandlot
  6. “The Chess Game” from Wonderland
  7. “Crabbiness Surcey” from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown
  8. “Some Pig!” from Charlotte’s Web
  9. Golden Ticket from Willy Wonka the musical
  10. “In the Nursery” from Mary Poppins the musical
  11. “Wicked Witch” from The Wizard of Oz
  12. “You’re in the Band!” from School of Rock the musical

The production of the assembly was led by Sarah Clancy, Grades 7 & 8 MultiArts Teacher and All-School Associate Teacher, and Mica Molloering, Head of Performing Arts, who also provided musical accompaniment.

Take a bow, Otters!
