We are a week out from opening That’s Weird, Grandma: Stories That Sing and Dance and I am very excited to share with you the incredible stories written by our students that are going into this Musical Extravaganza. You can click on the links to read the student’s original story.
Stories That Sing

It Hurts is a love song composed in collaboration with the student author herself.
The Prince and Princess is a TWG classic with a twist ending (spoilers ahead).
Evil Devil Printer is a hilariously haunting Opera that is making its TWG debut and was written by a neighborhood student at Peirce International School.
Stories That Dance
Glacier Living with Sharks is all about dolphins saving the world from global warming through dance.
Dear Government was a TWG audience favorite for over a year and its now its back again, asking the question is our government fair to dance teams?
The Queen with No Friends features Voguing, Duck Walking, Sissying that Walk and it continues to be an audience favorite.
Stories That Sing and Dance
