A Triumphant Night (or Two) of Fractured Tails

Division Two students recently brought two nights of entertaining theatre and elegant dining to our community. Over 160 people attended the third annual Swan Hills School Dinner Theatre to enjoy ‘A Night of Fractured Tails’, featuring six versions of the classic, ‘Three Little Pigs’, performed by Grades five and six students.

In most of the ‘tails’, the wolf was thwarted. In one, however, an adaptation of Jon Scieszka’s The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, the wolf got to tell his own side of the story, (it turns out the press had used a little hyperbole). The finale, The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, by Eugene Trivizas, had the audience roaring as the ‘big pig’ went after the wolves and then turned tail in an unexpected and hilarious twist.

The actors’ enthusiasm for their roles bubbled through the gym and the audience’s laughter filled the auditorium as students provided performances near worthy of Academy Awards.

Delighted to be served by very professional Grade 4 students, families dined on ham, cheese potatoes, corn, and chocolate cake. Handmade piggy-spoons embellished the creative centrepieces adorning elegantly laid tables.

Grade 5/6 teacher, Miss Davies, pulled it all together with the help Mrs. Kuyek, and many other staff members and parent volunteers. Their assistance was both necessary and very much appreciated.

We would like to thank the following businesses and community members who donated money and goods for the dinner: Sharon Veroba, X-Alta Oilfield Maintenance, Draft Oilfield Services, Norstar Glass, Irving k Excavation, Guye’s Backhoe Services Inc.,T&E Electric and Controls, Super A Foods, Quinn Pumps, Eckert’s Welding & Maintenance, Swan Palace Restaurant, BrewZers Coffee House & Restaurant, and Home Hardware.
