Houston Silverthorne Elementary School theatre performance

Students performed the musical “How toEat Like A Child and Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up.”

On Mar. 7 at 1 p.m. on the stage of the Silverthorne Elementary School gymnasium, students performed the musical “How toEat Like A Child and Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up.”

“We wanted the musical to be enjoyable and it minimized the need for elaborate and expensive costumes to be made,” said Julie Krall, principal of Silverthorne Elementary School, when asked why this theme was chosen.

Since October 2016 students and staff have been practicing to learn the songs and perform their individual numbers on stage.Lessons in getting your parents to buy you a puppy, how to stay up late without being caught, deciphering the language of adults, and how to enjoy and avoid eating certain foods were just a few of the many pieces performed.

“The musical has been an amazing experience for our students. The opportunity to work with a professional such as JanetHarris has allowed many of the students to explore their creative sides and learn that they love singing, acting and performing,” said Krall.

Through the efforts of the Silverthorne parent advisory committee, School District 54, and a grant from ArtStart, this fun and artistic performance was able to be put on.

Parents, siblings, and friends of students laughed in their seats and nodded in agreement to the many entertaining and true quips children do.
