Fifth graders performed rewritten fairytales Wednesday afternoon in their theater classes. The plays, directed by fifth and sixth grade theatre teacher Mr. Baldwin, featured comic retellings of classic stories, with a strong emphasis on irony. This week’s performance follows the seventh and eighth grade performance of “Diary of Anne Frank,” and “Fools,” directed by seventh and eighth grade theatre teacher Mr. Birkenhead. In February, Ms. Kolb’s eighth grade theatre class will perform Macbeth. The play will be directed by students in the class and will be performed both at Washington Latin and at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre.
