WDE first and second grades enjoyed a performance on January 31st by the Atlantic Coastal Theater. The Atlantic Coastal Theater is an acclaimed professional touring theatre company based in Orlando, FL. Each year, the Atlantic Coastal Theatre performs hundreds of shows for students across the U.S.A. WDE students enjoyed watching the show entitled FLIGHT! Mankind has always been fascinated with the skies, the stars, and reaching new heights. FLIGHT! combines creative staging, original music, & audience participation into a theatrical production that explores the stories of flight including the Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart, The US/Soviet "Space Race", & NASA's many accomplishments. Students were encouraged to think about the future of flight, and perhaps be inspired to become pioneers reaching for the stars themselves. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
