The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Today was supposed to be opening night for The Lion King, the musical the Friends Community School 6th grade has been working on since September. 
COVID-19 got in the way. But to commemorate the day, Kiersten and the cast put on their purple Lion King t-shirts and gathered in a Google Meet to sing and share their lines. Every 6th grader has a role in the show and works throughout the year building sets, sewing costumes, and rehearsing together.

Look for more sneak peeks into the Lion King process and performance as the students prepare for their debut, now postponed to fall 2020.
