Drama

The Thespians at Montessori presented their end of session drama performances, Friday, June 13th in front of an adoring crowd. The audience delighted in the younger students’ rendition of “Little Late Riding Hood”–loosely based on the children’s tale, “Little Red Riding Hood”. As the story unfolded, there once was a young girl; she was very little and always a little late . . .
