Character Matters II: The Fairy Tale Advice Council is back with more character education for the stars (and villains) of folktales. Can Hansel and Gretel teach the witch to be a good neighbor (as opposed to, uh, eating them)? Will the Troll learn from Three Billy Goats Gruff to stop bullying? And why didn’t Snow White ever thank the Seven Dwarves? This show has all the answers, as students learn through traditional tales and silly jokes (a Bad Wolf tradition) the importance of being polite, never giving up, taking care of the environment, working out differences and the Golden Rule! WEEK 6

July 19 - July 23

Drama Camp II

Hatshepsut, Queen of Denial: It’s early in the New Kingdom and something strange is happening in the land of Nile: Egypt has a female Pharaoh! The show follows Hatshepsut through her two decades as a pharaoh, culminating in the building of her magnificent mortuary temple at Deir el-Bahri (and the mysterious efforts after her death to remove her from Egyptian records). No mummy’s curse here, just a great opportunity for students to unwrap the nature of Egyptian art and architecture, trade, family life, the role of women, and the nature of kingship.

Millhopper Montessori Elementary/Middle School is happy to announce the 2010 End of the Year Show: Disney's Alice in Wonderland! Jr. Join Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the

White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters. This fastpaced stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."

You’re all invited! “Don’t be Late . . . For this very important date!”

Ms. Anita's Class opens the show as the children playing in the park. You'll enjoy a boy/girl in a white vest showing off his/her watch, some children playing cards, while others are playing many fun games.

Mr. Richard's Class enters the stage as they become the first set of Wonderland characters and the first three Cheshire cats.

Alice's adventures continue with Ms. Tina's class where you'll meet Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, the Dodo Bird, Rock Lobsters and other zany characters.

Ms. Sherilyn's Class takes you further into Wonderland and you're greeted by the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the March Hare, and the Caterpillar just to name a few.
