Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock
About a week ago Ashlyn came home with a paper telling us that she would be and actor in the play she will be in. We were so excited to find that out and we learned that we would get reserved seating, because we helped to sew costumes. Tonight we went to Ashlyn's school to see her and all the 2nd grade classes perform "Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock".This play is a musical about a spider that finds a moss-covered rock in the jungle. When he says the words "moss- covered rock he falls down into a deep sleep. He decides to see if any other jungle animals are effected in the same way. He takes the lions 1st, then the rhinos, and finally the elephants to the moss-covered rock. When they say the words "moss-covered rock" They fall down into a deep sleep and he steals their yams, mangos, and bananas. The animals have been tricked and are mad that Anansi has taken their food. The deer bush(Ashlyn's part) decide to trick the spider so that they can help the others can get their food back. So when Anansi tries to get them to say moss-covered rock they say "isn't this an odd grass covered stone, isn't this a weird green covered stone, and isn't this a strange green covered stone". The spider gets so mad that he yells " Isn't this a strange moss-covered rock and falls down into a deep sleep. The animals cheer and take back their food.The stage was decorated really cute and the all kids did an excellent job. Ashlyn did a fantastic job and it was fun to see her on stage singing and speaking so good. What a wonderful night.
