The Arts

Surrounded by kids from Upper, Middle, and Lower School as well as several parents, we worked on reindeer and set pieces, designing what would become a marble floor. There were two nutcrackers involved. The 3rd graders can now tell you how the large format printer works, and I promised them some 3D printing next time. The Lower School students worked with Upper School students to paint, and with parents to use the jig saw to cut out the reindeer’s body.

Hipsummers Nights Dream

The MV Allstars were invited to participate in the festival with their show “A Hipsummer Night’s Dream”, an original adaption of Shakespeare’s classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with a revised script set to hip-hop, R&B, disco, and jazz music.
