On the Journey 

news reel: stories of People, places, and learning AT Aspen Country Day School
All-School Play plot revealed! Lost in Time on stage April 27-28

At first it seems like an ordinary science project for a normal science fair. But when Aspen Country Day students showcase their mad skills with project-based learning, it's probably wise to expect the extraordinary. And an extraordinary time machine is what we get when Aardvarks take to the stage April 27 & 28 with this year's All-School Play, titled Lost in Time. 

The big show is already in rehearsal in drama classes on campus. Here's a synopsis from director Marci Sketch, using her best movie-trailer voice:

"When a group of students spend all their time and energy to make the greatest science project ever, a time machine, they 'forget' to study for their history exam. But why study when you can experience history for yourself -- by time-traveling back to Western frontier days, the early days of aviation, or the decade of the 1970s? But who could survive this epic all-nighter? Time will tell..."

With a record 265 students in the school performing in this musical production, Lost in Time looks to be the dramatic highlight of the historic Wheeler Opera House's spring season. Tickets go on sale in early April. More details about the show, and about play week (when we rehearse the production downtown at the Wheeler the week before the performances) will be posted as the big date approaches. For now, here is the list of which grades are performing each night.
