Playhouse in the Park Visits Mercy Montessori

Playhouse in the Park’s presentation of “High School Alien”.

The upper elementary was excited to welcome the Playhouse in the Park to Mercy Montessori on October 9th.  They performed “High School Alien,”  a play about an alien who is a refugee from outer space.  The play’s themes included bullying, the price of trying to become a member of “the popular group,” and the meaning of true friendship.  There was a preshow workshop at school that helped prepare the students for the themes presented in the play which included discussions and acting games.  There was also a post show question and answer session which gave the students insights into the technical side of putting together a production, as well as further understanding of the characters and the topics of the play.  The students truly enjoyed the production and the interaction with the actors!
