The Cast Talks About “Down By the Bayou”

After our Kindergarten-Fourth Graders put endless and amazing hard work into the play, it seemed important to give them a chance to reflect on their experiences. Here are some of the 1st-4th grade answers.

During music class they individually entered the Recording Studio, complete with puppets, string lights, Mama Bayou and Ms. Kauffeld’s laptop, and recorded themselves!

Here is what they had to say:

Recordings of the Songs for “Down By the Bayou”!!!

I recorded the songs using soundcloud.com, which is a very cool website to share your recordings! Check it out!

Something’s being a little funky with sharing from the soundcloud website- I’m hoping this will work.

“Down By the Bayou” As January Ends…

Happy February!

The curtain will open on our Kindergarten through Fourth grade play in a MONTH AND 13 DAYS!! Wahoo!

This means it is DEFINITELY time to be memorizing lines! The best way to learn lines is to read the scene with a family member! Remember that not only do you need to know WHAT to say, but WHEN to say it! (That’s called your “cue” line!)

Another great way to practice your lines is by following your blocking while you say them. Set up your bedroom as if it’s the stage, and move around on it like you were doing the real scene!

All of the cast members have been doing extraordinary work on our play- even on the Ski Day where we had less than half of our 1-4 students in school, we were able to use the time productively.

Lyrics for the four songs that the ENTIRE CAST will be singing are posted in a previous blog post- stay tuned for recordings that will be posted online!!

Thank you for all of your support, here’s another sneak peak into the work we did over the past two days!
