Pirates of Saint David's
Pirates invaded Saint David's yesterday. From Penzance.
Our fifth graders performed Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta with gusto and flair to an audience of delighted parents, myself included. Congratulations on a job well done to cast members Michael K. (Major-General), Adison L. (Pirate King), Ryan S. (Frederic), Laurencio G. (Ruth), Teddy G. (Mabel), Milo C., (Samuel) and Davis C. (Police Sergeant); and to all of the maidens, pirates, police officers, and stage crew members.
Each year Saint David's School closes the school year with this wonderful tradition, The Fifth Grade Musical, where the boys indulge their inner thespian, and get to sing their hearts out.
Music and drama are integral to our embrace of balance and the aesthetic at Saint David's. It was on full display yesterday, thanks in large part to Director Phyllis Clark, Musical Director Jeffrey Moore, producers Mary Beth Coudal, Jamie MacNeille, and Shane Meals, and parent volunteers Isobel Case, Kathy Egan, Amy Rohrbaugh, and Christine Tomas.
