A review by William S. Peare, world-famous drama critic:
"Sixth graders in Mr. Kim's Reader's Theater elective class put on quite a show on October 14, 2016. The show title was It's the Jazz, Man and the theme was A night of spoken word, set to jazz.
Sure enough, students wore beatnik-black clothes and ultra-cool shades. Lobby posters and stage signs echoed the hip theme as well.
In between bongo riffs by beat musician extraordinaire Isaiah Guillen and snippets of way-out jazz music, students took turns revealing their views of what a perfect world would be like.
Some hipsters spoke of peace in the world and an end to conflict and terrorism, while other cats mentioned having an ample supply of bacon, hearing peaceful snoring, and learning to admit that you're perfect.
The show ended after a few really gone dance moves. What a gas! Crazy, Daddy-O!"
You can view a slideshow of the posters and performers on the Reader's Theater page.
Congratulations to Mr. Kim and his Reader's Theater class!
