Another English Theatrical Marathon is History


The International Gymnasia Theater involving the students of grades 1-4 and 6 as actors invited their classmates, parents, friends, and teachers as viewers to the incredible performances on May 29, 2019. Among the teachers who prepared the plays with their students were Y. K. Rabenko, L. M. Erdman, A. O. Kalieva, and O. M. Omelyanenko. Especially exciting was the staging of "Alice in Wonderland" prepared by O. M. Omelianenko teaching in grades 4-A and 4-B. Young actors played with pleasure. They not only learnt all the words extremely well, but also paid significant attention to English pronunciation and intonation. Actors skillfully danced the cattery, which envoked the burst of applause among the audience that was particularly impressed by the performance of Little Bug - SKIBIDI. As for the students of 2A and 2B grades who this year participated in the staging of the English folk tale "The Gadfly's Palace" for the first time, for them the performance on the stage of the gymnasia became a sort of dedication to the life of our school theater and brought tons of happy moments and experiences. It wasn't only the students of 1, 3, and 6-B grades taught by Erdman L. M. who readily joined the preparation of "Three Little Kittens", and "Peggy the Pintsize Pirate". Their parents, just as those of all other groups, helped with creating props, decorating the stage and finding costumes for the little characters of the plays. Teacher Y. K. Rabenko with her 4th grades staged "The Chronicles of Narnia", the work of K. S. Lewis, equally popular with children and parents. Children's costumes were simply impressive. They also spoke English with pleasure trying to maintain proper intonation and showed excellent acting skills. So, the gymnasia community definitely enjoys and supports the tradition of such performances in English and Spanish. Hopefully, in the next academic year we will be able to see the performances of this kind and quality in German and French as well.
