Young actors wow the crowds with two performances of their favorite folktales



Some of Wareham’s young stars took to the primary school stage on August 18 to perform two classic tales: Stone Soup and the Three Little Pigs.

The performances were presented by participants of the CARE summer program at Wareham School. Teachers and co-directors Jane Petracca and Renee Fernandes said they were impressed with the students’ performances, especially because they didn’t have as much time to rehearse.

The first performance of the day was Stone Soup – a classic tale of villagers sharing what little they have to create a delicious soup that feeds them all.

“It was really fun!” Keira enthuses. “I knew all my lines. It was the best day of my life!”

Emily, who played the village girl who brought onions to the soup, said she hoped to perform in another play if given the chance. She said her dream piece would be City Mouse, Country Mouse.

“I was a little nervous but I was excited,” said Jordyn, who noted how real the food – made by Fernandes – looked.

Rosabella, another actress, also said she loves working with props. She said she was thrilled to have gotten a starring role in this production – adding the veggies to the pot – and said she had fun.

The second performance was that of the Three Little Pigs.

Markus, who played the Big Bad Wolf, developed a distinctive voice for his character.

“I was thinking in my head of a wolf voice, and then I added texture by adding a little growl to it,” he explained. He said he loves being on the show and hopes to be in an action movie one day.

Alivia, who was one of the narrators, said the show was cool, but she wished she could play one of the little piggies whose houses are destroyed.

Lillian said she was so scared her stomach hurt before the show, and while she was on stage she tried not to look at her parents. After the show, she was in a good mood.

Adrianna said she would like to be in a room that looked like The Three Little Pigs, but with bunnies instead. By the end of her play, she says, the rabbits would live with their parents — unlike the three little pigs who live with the pig brother who built the brick house.

Alivia said she would like to do a play about the ducklings facing off against an evil dragon.
