The Little Windmills Take the Stage 2019
“Go, go, go, go, go, hand in mine, friend come let’s go. Go, go, go, go, go, on an adventure, here we go!” The anticipated moment has arrived. The children enter the stage with a great desire to perform their items for their audience. Some of them confident, some of them shy, together they perform uninhibitedly while their parents celebrate their year of growth and learning downstage.
The Little Windmills take the Stage! is an annual presentation of students from The Theatre Practice Education Project’s Children Course. After a year of learning, each class takes their significant moment on stage to showcase their fruits of learning on this special day to their loved ones in a 10-minute presentation.
We value the growth of the children over their amazing performances on stage. Let us hold an open heart and witness the friendship they have built up, the self-confidence they have cultivated, and their growth. Let this stage bring you more laughter and warmth.
Venue: Practice Space
One of the hardest parts of growing up is not just developing our sense of self, but discovering how that self relates to the rest of the world.
We are all part of a larger environment. While pursuing self-growth, we cannot forget that our individual actions have an impact beyond ourselves.
This awareness must be cultivated from a young age. At Practice, we believe this is best done through artmaking and play.
Therefore, we have chosen the theme… “We”!
From the showcase itself, to the communal drawing wall and combined classes, we introduced activities that expand learning beyond the classroom and create opportunities for inter-class interaction. It is these moments where our students can look out for each other and learn from their peers, regardless of class allocation or age.
As our Little Windmills take the stage, they do so understanding they are members of the Practice community, where they are both always supported and always supporting!
I’m sure you too, can feel this spirit of interconnectedness that binds us all.
