Christmas Program 2018

Nov 29th, 2018

This time of year is so special at Annunciation - Advent begins, we are getting close to the end of our first semester of school, and Christmas program rehearsals kick into high gear! 

For decades, Annunciation Catholic School has held our Christmas program, sharing the story of the birth of Jesus with songs and highlights to last the whole Christmas season. Generations of families sing “Kermit’s Christmas” together while baking cookies or wrapping gifts. It is a shared moment that truly signifies the holy season is here. 

Below is a note from our Creative Arts teacher and director, Miss Lorissa Letwin, who has kept the tradition going while adding her creativity to bring about our students “potentiality” in music and song. We hope you can join us for one or more performances. You can also order a DVD copy.

Mark your calendars for the Annunciation Christmas Program – 2018:
•    Wednesday, December 19 – 9:00 am – Dress Rehearsal and Grandparents’ performance
•    Thursday, December 20 – 9:00 am – Full performance for family and guests
•    Thursday, December 20 – 6:30 pm – Full performance for family and guests (Please note new time, and this year the kindergarten class will be performing at the evening concert too!)


Invite family and friends. We look forward to seeing you there!

God Bless,
Jennifer M. Cassidy,
Principal

From Miss Letwin, Creative  Arts teacher and director:
The holidays are right around the corner and you know what that means, the Christmas Program is almost here!! Students at Annunciation have been hard at work preparing their songs for the Christmas program. The theme of this year’s program is “Nativity on Broadway”! The Nativity is the heart of our program but this year it is experiencing a new twist. 


 

 

 

 

This fictional story takes places in the present day. As the story goes, all around us the arts are losing support and momentum. Music and art programs are being cut in schools all around the country and the world. To resemble this, our story represents the struggle of getting audience members in our seats for the show. Due to lack of interest in the arts, Annunciation may lose the auditorium and never provide shows again! Throughout this story, the students come together to create the most spectacular Broadway show that Annunciation has ever seen so they can keep the auditorium running and share the story of Jesus our Savior! Hit songs from Broadway shows such as The Lion King, Wicked, and Newsies will be represented throughout the show to support the challenges, celebrations, and successes of our first grade actors and actresses. 

Get ready to see Annunciation students take on Broadway with their voices and dancing! This show will be one of a kind and we are excited to share our talents with you. We hope to see you in December for, “Nativity on Broadway”!
