Over the Rainbow

Vivienne's beautiful little co-op recreated The Wizard of Oz for their end of the year production. I was astounded by the magnitude and beauty of the work that these five young girls created alongside the amazing adults, Chama, Alan and Peter (as well as many other contributors). They learned their lines, (which were adapted to Yome school locale thanks to Alan) as well as solo and group songs. I could see that the girls learned and grew in astonishing ways. Mia was excited to join the cast as a munchkin.
Dorothy and Toto in Barnardsville


This was one of the funniest scenes. The flying monkey (Alan) flew down the zip line behind the stage, ran through the audience and snatched up Dorothy (Vivienne). Can you see the sheer delight in the approach of the flying monkey? A priceless moment!


"There's no place like Yome, There's no place like Yome..."

In addition to putting on a delightful production, the children raised about $300, which they chose to donate to the Heifer International. Between the $1 admission, concessions and a raffle for a beautiful shelf that Papa Jeremy helped the girls build, they made a beautiful contribution!
Extra love and thanks to Chama , the director mama extraodinaire! As well as all the amazing helpers and parents who made this such a wonderful experience!
