A Glimpse into the Past

The fifth-grade students of Idle Hour Elementary School recently put on a wonderful theatre production, entitled ‘A Kid’s Life,’ with assistance from director and Idle Hour Elementary School music teacher Kelly Daugherty. The play, which was written by John Jacobson and Mac Huff, tells the story of a community that loses all electricity due to invaders from outer space, thus preventing kids from using their cell phones, laptops and video games.

In the play, students portraying “Grandma and Grandpa” show up and introduce them to a day filled with adventure, music and imagination, all without the use of electronic gadgets. The young actors entertained their family, friends and schoolmates with songs, dancing and games that the older generations enjoyed before the age of electric tools and games.

Additionally, the students’ “Grandfriends” from the Arbors Assisted Living at Bohemia were in attendance and highly enjoyed the show.
