The Central School 4th Grade will perform Winner Takes All! on June 2.
A Knight At The Round Table is a musical with two entirely different worlds within it.
There is the story occurring in the modern world about a girl named Gwen who is ridiculed for her belief in the legendary ruler, King Arthur of Camelot. As she studies the king, Arthur’s story — from his birth to the fall of Camelot — is revealed in flashbacks. The modern-day students begin to recognize similar struggles and crises as those faced in Arthurian times.
Can Gwen convince her friends of the value of King Arthur’s lessons? This show takes you to Camelot!
The story tells the tale of 7 brown lizards who are safe and happy at home with their parents, King Upinde and Queen Wamvua. The king forbids his children from ever leaving their bonny brown bog. Shortly afterwards, Queen Wamvua confides to her 7 children that she has heard there are other colors out there in the world.
The 7 brown lizards decide to go out and see for themselves. One by one, they encounter frogs colored in each of the rainbow’s colors, and learn many new songs. The lizards, in fact, change to different colors.
They return home to and share these experiences with their parents. King Upinde realizes it was wrong to shield his little lizards from the other colors of the world, and learns that “It Takes A Rainbow.”
Mr. and Mrs. Baptista have two daughters who attend Padua School of Arts. They know their younger daughter, Bianca, to be beloved and kind, and they know their older daughter, Katrina, to be a loathsome bully. Katrina has an awful reputation and terrorizes everyone at school. In an attempt to rectify matters, Mrs. Baptista decides Bianca will not be allowed to participate in any activities unless Katrina is also invited. Mrs. Baptista restricts Bianca to attending classes and seeing tutors.
But no one is willing to do anything at all with Katrina! The students are deeply affected by Bianca’s resulting absence. Gina, Giada, and Horace conspire to find someone to befriend Katrina so that Bianca can be free again to socialize. They are keen to have Bianca join the school choir, for instance. Horace has a special interest in helping Bianca: he hopes to date her.
Two new students arrive at Padua School of Arts: Lucas, and his sister Tania. Like Horace, Lucas is smitten by Bianca’s beauty. Remembering that Bianca is allowed to see only her tutors, Lucas and Horace decide to disguise themselves so that they may spend time with Bianca and court her.
Meanwhile, two other new students arrive at the school: close friends Patricia and Grace. They decide to establish a debate society, and quickly make it their mission to tame “Katrina, The Shrew.”
