Togas were in abundance and the auditorium at Middlebrook School was packed with parents, students and staff who came to watch the sixth grade yellow team perform plays from ancient times during its annual Greco-Roman Festival on Thursday, May 21.
Social studies teacher Luisa Nanos said the festival — which has taken place for close to 20 years — is “a team-wide effort that often becomes students’ favorite and most memorable project of their sixth grade year.”
After auditioning, each yellow team sixth grader was given a role in one of the following five plays:
- The Furies.
- Pandora’s Box.
- Romulus and Remus.
- Julius Caesar.
