On Friday, December 17, just about every student at NBS will take part in the 27th “St. George and the Dragon,” a winter ritual hearkening back hundreds–and in some cases, thousands–of years.
The show is a patchwork of songs, stories, skits, and dances from many traditions, all designed to keep people hopeful and cheerful on the shortest day of the year. Students as young as 6 sing and dance in the show’s opening scenes, while the oldest students perform the main “St. George” part of the play. Students provide all of the music for the show on recorder, metallophone, guitar, cello, harp, and drum.
It’s an evening of magic and light, full of hope for a peaceful and happy New Year for all. We hope you can join us.
Where: Rockfish Valley Community Center, just off Route 151 (about 8 miles south of school)
When: December 17, at 1:30 and 7 pm
No admission charge. Donations of non-perishable food will be collected and brought to the Nelson County Food Pantry. Donations of money will go to the Naomi Scherr Memorial Scholarship Fund.
