Kindergarten through sixth grade students were treated to a professional acting group, The Barter Players, performing Aesop's Fables. This original and exciting musical adventure had our students experiencing fables such as Androcles and the Lion, The Oak and the Reed, The Fox Without a Tail, The Beast in Love, The Tortoise and The Hare, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
Following the production, actors held a question and answer session for all students. Sixth graders also enjoyed a special meet and greet with one of the actors.
The Barter Players are a group of professional artists who perform world-class theatre for young audiences. The troupe presents high-energy and original productions that capture the imagination of today's youth while providing the best in classic literature and beloved story adaptations.
This is the third year St. Mark's has brought the troupe to entertain, educate, and expose students to drama and theatre.
