Day 3: Feb 5, 2020

Today something special happened; we performed “Theseus and the Minotaur.” What is Theseus and the Minotaur? It is an ancient Greek tale made thousands of years ago in Athens.
It is about the prince of Athens, Theseus, and how he can no longer stand more and more of his people being taken away to be eaten by a monster that has the body of a man and the head of a fearsome bull called the Minotaur. Every year seven young Athenian men and women have to be fed to the creature. Determined that he can slay the beast, he travels as one of the Athenian youth to be led to the island where the Minotaur sleeps.
Anyways, in this play, I perform as Theseus. Our whole class worked hard on this play for two months. We bought Greek costumes, practiced saying our lines and songs loudly, worked on our pronunciation and the clearness. We presented it to the entire school today, Wednesday, February 5, 2020, but we will perform again tomorrow to our parents. Performing this play was hard, but in the end, we did it! Do you perform musical plays in your school like we do?
