2015 - “On the Radio”
This pilot presentation/performance included costume and prop design, back stage crew duties, a chorus, as well as actresses and actors. The final performance was presented to the entire elementary school, parents and family in order to celebrate their elementary school years as they transitioned to Rockport Middle School.

"The 5th grade Musical was a wonderful way to wrap up elementary school! Working with the stage crew, I got to see first hand, how the kids got to have a lot of input. My own daughter was in the play as a character who got to sing and dance on stage in front of her peers, where she got to the chance to work on her confidence. The musical gave any 5th grader the chance to be part of the team. From performing in a larger role or even singing a solo, choosing a smaller role or singing with the group. If performing wasn't their thing, they could be part of the production team, designing and painting the sets, working the lights or working behind the scenes. The kids got the chance to collaborate with each other and perhaps work closely with someone they wouldn't normally have worked with before and maybe even formed new friendships!" - Tracy daSilva, parent
This was an opportunity for the children to experience drama/the arts when schedules can be so busy with sports & class work - Thank you EFR for providing this opportunity to the kids. - Margaret Jarrett, parent
