“The Catch of the Day” Play
“The Catch of the Day”
On Friday, January 20th, the 5th Graders performed “The Catch of the Day: A Trickster Tale” told through West-African story-telling traditions, this is the tale of a greedy fisherman who tricks his friends into giving up valuable items that they wish to sell. Once the villagers realize they’ve been tricked, they work together to teach the fisherman a lesson. All students did a wonderful job designing costumes, making props, and helping their audience to understand the moral of this West-African folktale.
