This past Wednesday (14 December 2022), the kids of Trego School’s drama class put on their holiday play, a rendition of The Christmas Crocodile, a book by Bonny Becker (link is to the book listing at Lincoln Co. Public Library).
Despite technical problems with the sound system, the kids carried the play off without a hitch. The narrator seemed unfazed by the speaker problems and kept all the other kids on pace, the actors knew their positioning on stage as well as their lines – many even gave their characters special voices. The stage crew did a wonderful job of shifting the scenery around – they were quick and very stealthy in their black clothing!
After the upper grades wrapped up with their play, all the assembled kids gathered together on stage and serenaded the crowd with several Christmas carols. The kids covered “Up on the Housetop”, “Frosty the Snowman”, “Jingle Bell Rock”, and finished off with “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”. They sung exuberantly, and did quite well in the absence of a sound system.
After the caroling finished, the staff of Trego School had treats for the kids and audience alike to enjoy. Delicious, as per usual.
