  • The Pied Piper's Wild West Show

    Over 110 students in grade 1-5 took part in our Better Than Broadway Production of The Pied Piper’s Wild West Show on February 28th at Bergenfield High School. The children learned the entire play (script, songs, and choreography) in 5 days. Practice was after school each day from 3:15-5:15 with an assembly on Friday and the show on Friday evening February 28th. The children experienced what it was like to perform on the “big stage”. Thank you to all the parents who helped out and CONGRATULATIONS to the children on a job well done. Please click on the title for pictures.
