Thursday, Nov. 15, 7 p.m. 6th-grade drama presents Seattle Stories in Evans Theater at the Middle School. Seattle Stories is an evening of storytelling and performance inspired by our experiences in our shared geography. Each student in the fall Drama 6 class tells a true personal story from their own life that took place in (or around) Seattle. Their peers join in the fun, portraying parents and guardians, pets, siblings, teachers, set pieces, sound effects, and inner monologues in a storytelling theater-inspired program. If you know a 6th-grade drama student, you just might see yourself onstage!
