COMMUNITY EVENTS

FVS presented School Vignettes with the view to encourage the interest of local school children in musical adaptations of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, notably Pirates of Penzance. These 45 minute vignettes were presented free of charge to local elementary schools and consisted of a costumed mini-cast performing a condensed version including solo numbers interspersed with commentary. These were followed by a question-and-answer session where the children were encouraged to look on this live entertainment as something they might want to make a continuing part of their lives, either as performers or as an audience member. These were presented to 34 elementary schools from 2001 to 2005.
