A Visit From the Playwright of The Little Lion

Our study of drama just keeps getting better this year. Not only are we going to see THE LITTLE LION at the Swift Creek Mill Theatre, but the PLAYWRIGHT paid us a visit as well.  She is the multi-talented Irene Ziegler, who writes books, acts, and writes plays!  As I said before combining the study of drama with the "authentic theater experience" make this unit priceless. Irene came and gave students the inside scoop on what it is like to take a true story and develop the nonfiction book into a play. She also made student use those DRAMA terms as she explored the comparison of the book Izzy's Fire to the play, The Little Lion..Whooh... what a great reward!  Thank you, Irene Ziegler!

How do you make Teaching Drama come alive?
