West Boundary Elementary School students wowed the audience with the production of an amazing musical play last week.
The Castaways played on Tuesday and Thursday nights with Thursday being preceded by an outdoor barbeque.
There were 10 actors on the main stage with another half dozen students playing the part of a modern day cast appearing in the spotlights in front of the choir numbering another 43 students.
The modern day cast learned of the challenges of living on the streets. The castaways brought the story to life of a group of homeless youth in Vancouver during the Depression years.
Through following the play, the modern day cast was able to help one of their peers to understand how lucky they are to have a home and family.
Kudos to Mrs. Biro for another outstanding success as director of an elementary school production.
According to the screen credits that ran following the show, the production has been named the official selection of the WBES Gym Festival and winner of the Audience Choice Award!
Admission to the play was by donation – dinner was either $5 or $7 depending on your choice of a hot dog or a hamburger. Proceeds will be used to help fund the Grade 6/7 field trip for the WBES students next spring.
