The East Natchitoches Elementary School will present its annual Christmas musical entitled “North Pole” by John Jacobson and Mac Huff, Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 5:30 P.M. at the school.
The plot of this year’s musical is that auditions are underway for the 400th Anniversary of “North Pole Musical,” and everyone is in a panic. The dancing reindeer are “hoofin’ it,” but don’t know what to do with Rudolph and his four left hooves. The elves are tired of always getting the short end of the stick and are singin’ the blues. The snowmen are “chillin,” but worried about the funky hot lights, and the toys are trying to do the entire Nutcracker Suite in three minutes. The annual Christmas show keeps getting bigger and bigger. But, wait a minute! Is bigger really better? See how Santa finds a way to remind everyone of the true meaning of the season.
The musical will include: lights, drama, dancing, and singing. The choreography was written, learned, and taught by students. Santa Claus is being played by student Joshua Nash. Mrs. Claus will be sixth grader, Abryannah Sykes playing the part. The musical is under the direction of choral music teacher, Mr. Danny R. Von Kanel. The principal at East Natchitoches Elementary school is Chrystal Davis. Dale Skinner is Superintendent of the Natchitoches Parish Public School District.
Parents and the Natchitoches community are cordially invited to the 5:30 P.M. performance on Dec. 18. The performance is free.
