5th Grade, Teaching

PS 51 5th grade students worked over the last several months to develop an original script into a large-scale production called The Blue Morpho. Students wrote the script, auditioned for parts, composed and arranged music for each scene and scene change. They designed and painted amazing sets, props, and designed and created costumes, and learned to work the lighting, sound, and projection system backstage. Each student chose a team to be a part of–cast, set/costume design, orchestra, or backstage crew– where they felt they could use their talents. It was a lot of work, but it was a lot of fun! Congratulations 5th graders & all who made this possible! We are so proud of you! Check out the video!
