What Happened After Once Upon A Time?

March 30, 2023

Fifth graders at Tackan Elementary let us know! Acting out such classics as "Three Little Pigs," "Cinderella," and "Repunzel," the students put on a fantastic performance on Thursday afternoon.

As each tale began its ”once upon a time,” the main characters showed up to interrupt and correct the newbie narrator’s telling of their story. Turns out, these characters have hysterical idiosyncrasies: Rapunzel is an insufferable diva, Cinderella is a clean freak, the Three Little Pigs are hypochondriacs, Little Red Riding Hood is a lawyer defending the Wolf, and more.

It’s up to the characters to explain what really happened after “once upon a time.” Wouldn’t you know? Everyone lived happily ever after, of course!

Thank you to Mrs. Fenster, Mr. Collaso, and Mr. Trelewicz for all of their work to make the fifth grade place a special for our students.
