“An Elfis Christmas” – December 10th

6th, 7th, and 8th grade performed “An Elfis Christmas” Written by Teresa Jennings. A play in 2 Acts:

Act 1-The Elf Impersonator, and Act 2-Elfis and the Sleigh riders. The play is about an Elf at the North Pole, trying to mix in with the other elves. The big thing is that he’s different, he acts and looks like the famous singer, Elvis. It’s a great story with a moral about how to treat people that are different. There are lots of great songs in the style of Elvis within this musical play.

“A Holly Jolly Christmas” Concert – December 17th

Kindergarten through 5th grade performed secular/pop Christmas songs, along each group performing one “Jesus” song. Ms. Mazich-Music Teacher and the students loved practicing and performing the fun, happy songs, but we still remember that Jesus is the reason for the Season. From Jingle Bells to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. It was a terrific and fun performance!

A special thank you to the OLR faculty and staff, for all their cooperation. To Ms. Mazich-Music Director and Mrs. Zazaian-Drama Director for all the hard work, extra rehearsals, and planning to make the 2014 Christmas Drama/Music plays and concerts a great success.
