Topics Jonathan can cover in a post show Q&A or that elementary school teachers can integrate before/after include:
– If students at your elementary school study a foreign language, students can identify with Sammy’s struggles to understand French.
– “body language” (how do we communicate non-verbally, what are ways we know how someone is feeling without words, etc.)
– humor/comedy (what is the difference between a comedy and a tragedy, how do actors or writers make us laugh, what is the difference between laughing “with someone” or “at someone”, humor as a tool for bringing people together, de-escalating tensions, etc.).
– Acting workshops are available before/after the performance. If the workshop is held before the show, there is the possibility of students participating in the performance as guests at the Grand Buffet. These students would be fulfilling MA curriculum standards for performing arts participation.
