The Making of America

Move over, Hamilton! Saint David's second graders have a sure-fire hit with Huzzah! Huzzah!, an original play about the Second Continental Congress. Written by former faculty members, the show combines famous American tunes with a re-enactment of the deliberations of July 4, 1776.

Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, Patrick Henry were all present. The boys were terrific; they sang with confidence and delivered their lines expertly, including an impressive recitation of The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. What a joy for the boys to be able to perform this show for the first time in our beautiful new Otto-Bernstein Performing Arts Theatre.

Congratulations to our second graders, and to producers Ms. Buhr, Ms. Falvey, Mrs. Patterson and Mr. Moore!
