Limai Calvert Drama shows
In June，Limai's Calvert Department carried out a series of drama shows. Calvert Elementary School, Middle School, and High School students actively participated in the shows and achieved good results.
Let's enjoy the wonderful silhouette of these dramas!
Part 1 Calvert Elementary School-Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web is an award-winning children's novel by acclaimed American author E. B. White, about a pig named Wilbur who is saved from being slaughtered by an intelligent spider named Charlotte. The book was first published in 1952, with illustrations by Garth Williams.
The novel tells the story of a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising Wilbur (such as "Some Pig") in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live.
Part 2 Calvert Middle School-Happiness Shop
Three middle school students find themselves in an odd curiosity shop. They don’t know what it is, where they are, or how they got there. But that’s no surprise. The Happiness Shop is not like any other. It is filled with Roppets.
A Roppet is not quite a robot and not quite a puppet. A Roppet is completely happy all the time. Full of smiles, hugs and hi-fives. Isn’t that all it takes for a middle school student to be happy? They’re too young to have problems.
Blake, Melanie and Wally know that’s not true. They all have pretty big problems. But in the shop, they have one question to answer and one question only: What would you do to be completely happy?
Part 3 Calvert High School-The Crucible
The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists. Miller was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.
At Limai, students are always given many opportunities to receive diverse, multicultural and high quality education. Special thanks to the drama teachers and actors, whose hard work and dedication gave students the chance to shine on stage!
