They not only got a breath of fresh air, but they also honed their skills in “filling the space” with their movements and “projection” while competing with the laughter from the neighboring elementary playground and the sounds of passing vehicles. Don't forget to mark your calendars! The Neverending Story, a production from STJ Tiger Drama, will be taking the stage at 7:00 PM on Thursday, November 16th, and Friday, November 17th, with a matinee at 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 19th.
