The students at Sir John A. Cumber Primary put on an impressive effort in two Christmas productions to help usher in the holiday season.
On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the Infant Department brought in the festive season with their Christmas show, featuring singing, dancing and poetry for an appreciative audience of parents, family and friends. Following the performances by the children in Reception and Year 2, the Year 1 and Year 3 groups presented their mini musical, “Busy, Busy Bethlehem,” which featured Roman soldiers, Mary and Joseph, shepherds, kings, angels and the baby Jesus, with the adorable performers delivering the show with great gusto.
On Tuesday, Dec. 15, the Sir John A. Cumber Primary School Choir and junior actors, led by school music director Rebekah Jefferson, presented “Happily Forever After! This is not a fairy tale.”
The musical followed the story of Brooke, who becomes separated from her family while on vacation. After trying on a beautiful princess cape she found, she was transported to a medieval kingdom where she came across many colorful characters, including Princess Pride, Madame Luxuree and Lady Windabag, along with Sir Brags A Lot and his faithful assistant, Page One.
The story then takes a turn as a humble carpenter they meet along the way helps them to safety, and battles Dragon Doom on their behalf, leaving the characters and audience with a gospel message befitting the season.
Along with friends and family, the enthusiastic audience included government minister Tara Rivers.
