  • Rhythmic sound patterns, such as those created by bouncing balls (above), combine with movement and music to fill a child’s dream of Christmas in the production of “Awe; A Child’s Dream of Christmas,” a musical scripted by fifth-graders at Central School under the direction of music teacher Dan Venner. In the production, the child (portrayed by Miles Cobb) is led by the Night Elf (Hannah Dominique) into the magic of Christmas. Inspired by “Stomp” and “Cirque du Soleil”, simple objects such as bouncing balls, plastic buckets, PVC pipes and other items were used to create rhythmic patterns and holiday music. The students presented their production Monday evening at Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center. The Central School Stingers, a choir comprised of fourth- and fifth-grade students, sang several Christmas songs prior to the fifth-grade program.
