The Christmas program for the 2016-2017 year was “THE NUTCRACKER.” The first and fourth grades of NDES performed. It was a lot of fun! This is the only musical for elementary students that I come back to over and over again. The first time I did it, my oldest daughter was in the 4th grade, which would be approximately 1992! I have all my printed programs from every concert I have done at North Daviess, so I should go back and look to see exactly how many times we performed this show! The Chinese costumes are some of the old tunics I made for a Beatles number when I taught high school, which would date them before 1991. The band uniforms I got from Washington Catholic. They were pitching them, and we were doing the show, THE MUSIC MAN. That was 1982! I’m such a pack rat!
