Young Jackson performers take show to Coronado
K-2 students at Jackson Elementary School will give two presentations of the musical, “How Does Your Garden
Grow?” Thursday, April 15. |
The first show will be at Jackson, 4340 Edwinstowe Ave., at 1:30 p.m. and the second will be in the Coronado High School Auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free.
“It's a musical play,” explained Angela Bruno, music teacher at Jackson. “The students all have parts and they sing and dance. It's a big production, but they're going to do great… They're so cute, so young and don't care. They're out there to have a good time”
This is Bruno's first year at Jackson. She had previously taught in Oklahoma.
She was grateful to Coronado for allowing use of its auditorium. The bigger stage size will be helpful, Bruno said.
The musical, written by John Jacobs and John Higgins, “has a moral to it,” Bruno said. “The kids are having fun but hopefully they're learning a lesson.”
There will be five songs. The titles are “Planting Seeds,” “We Are the Loveliest Flowers,” “Weeds Rule,” “Garden Hoedown” and “How Does Your Garden Grow?”
