Strasburg School Music Director Mr. Jeff Ingerson welcomes families to Strasburg Elementary School spring program and musical play on Tues., May 7
The third and fourth grade classes had something for everyone in “Comedy Tonight” and “It’s The Hard-Knock Life.” They took the audience to the sky flying high as a bird through mountains, forests and above seas in “Eagle” and relished in the blue skies, rainbows, flowers, walks in the park and singing birds in “Summer’s In The Air.”
A root, a toot in “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” was the opening from the students in fifth and sixth grades. They also sang “Mack the Knife” and took the crowd to tropical islands to get away from it all in “Kokomo.”
Elementary students also performed a musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classical “Treasure Island.” Captain Smollett, played by Cody Heidrich, makes his misgivings known to the townspeople.
Long John Silver, a one-legged pirate played by Faith Theisgen, is a very cunning man who puts on a friendly, helpful exterior while all the time planning treachery. Jim Hawkins, played by Kassandra Hulm (pointing), becomes aware of Silver’s plot and informs the pirates.
