Mrs. Schnaible’s drama class put on a live Nativity show on Monday, December 6. The show took two months practice and prepare beginning with rigorous auditions. Each actor was required to read a script, dance, and sing to properly cast parts. To make the Nativity a success, Mrs. Schnaible reached out to other teachers for help. Mr. Rosslo and all the counselors pitched in to help prepare the students for the big night. Tim Walsh commented that “the live Nativity this year was well developed and is something we are all proud of.” Alyssa Poudrier who attended the show loved the “different approach this year” sharing that “it was creative and well thought out.” Different from past years, there was dancing, singing, and for some people, their own lines. Everything used to be pre-recorded for the show, but this year Mrs. Schnaible wanted to take a more genuine approach. This year’s Nativity was one of the best productions in years and a great way to kick off the Christmas season!
