If you have a great little play and you’d like a great little audience, then perform for a bunch of kindergarten kids.

The Charles Henderson Middle School Intro to Theater class had a great little play and also a great little audience in the kindergarten classes from Troy Elementary School for their performance Friday. And, everyone had a great little time at the Troy Public Library’s Fall Carnival.

More than 155 kindergarten students and their teachers and parents made up the audiences for three performances of  “The Three Little Pigs.”

“The library collaborated with the middle school on the fall carnival that include the play, Halloween crafts and outside games,” said Teresa Colvin, TPL children’s librarian. “The kindergarten students were a great audience and everyone had a lot of fun.”

Jenny Meadows, intro to theater teacher, said the script for “The Three Little Pigs” was the handiwork of Emily Grant’s creative writing class at CHMS.

“The students did a fantastic job of creating a script which was adapted from Dr. David Dye’s Piped Pipers program at Troy University.”

Dye, retired dean of the university’s theater department, organized a troupe of university students who performed for elementary students in and around Pike County.

“The Pied Pipers shared stories with young children and I would like for the CHMS intro to theater class to have those same opportunities,” Meadows said. “It would be a good experience for the theater students and a great way to expose young students to theater.”
