James and the Giant Peach

May 21, 2022.  In the culmination of more than a year of preparation, students in grades 3 through 8 presented the full-hour play, James and the Giant Peach, based on the story by Roald Dahl. Siblings, parents, grandparents, and teachers packed the school courtyard in the warm late afternoon sunlight. The actors hit their marks and delivered their lines, costumed engagingly and supported by elaborate set.  In all the many hours of work-up to this evening they were guided by teacher Elizabeth Brasher and supported by many LCA families who sewed costumes, provided materials, and constructed and painted sets. After the performance the actors and the audience mingled with conversation and refreshments. The program here gives the credits, condensing so much work.  The two carousels of images capture some of the memorable scenes. Vince Gutschick recorded the play and post-processed the recording to put it on YouTube.  We’ll all recall this event warmly.
