Happy holidays, everyone! Our Drama Dragons and Stage Gryffins Christmas parties were a lot of fun. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any pictures, but I’ll try to give you a detailed description of the events to help remedy that.
For the Stage Gryffins’ party, we began by reading a script. The voices that the students used for their characters were very entertaining (i.e. overexuberance mixed with voice-cracking). After we had finished, we had a snowball fight. The students stood back-to-back, and on the count of three, stepped forward, turned around, and chucked jumbo marshmallows at each other. During the next class, we were still finding marshmallows under the couches. When the snowball fight was done, we took a break to munch on cookies, brownies, and other assorted snacks. We then did our Secret Elf gift exchange. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to do anything else before the class was over. All in all, everyone had a great time.
The Drama Dragons’ party started off with a semi-sweet activity. This was our beloved Sienna’s last day with us, so we decided to roast her (for those of you who don’t know, “roasting” is basically using comedy to playfully insult somebody). It was very official… we had an M.C., dramatic music, and an actual, real-life schedule. That went off very well, and we made sure Sienna knew that most of us didn’t actual mean what we were saying. We recorded it on video, so that might be posted on the YouTube channel sometime in the future. We then ate a bunch of unhealthy food and did our Secret Elf gift exchange.
The first Friday we’ll be back is January 5th, where we’ll start reading scripts to prepare for our spring production. Blessings to all my Dragons and Dragon Families. Happy Holidays! See you in 2018!
