    We are so proud of all of our EPA students who wrote their own plays in Theatre Class! These plays were inspired by the children's author, Roald Dahl, and will focus on character, setting, conflict, story structure, and staging. Parents will be able to choose from two sessions to attend and Student Council will be sponsoring a breakfast or lunch fundraiser so parents and families can enjoy a meal while watching the show. We can't wait to see your performances the week of Feb. 29th, EPA!
