Life after a massive electromagnetic attack from outer space unfolded on the stage at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School when the fifth-grade High Notes chorus performed their spring musical, “A Kid’s Life.”

The comical play told the tale of a group of children looking for fun during a time when the world was suddenly void of electricity. With the help of their grandparents, they learned to experience life free of fancy gadgets and video games as they embarked on an imaginative adventure filled with music.

Under the direction of teacher Craig Knapp, the students worked for months to prepare for the production. Commenting on the experience, fifth-grader Michela Belcastro said, “Preparing for a musical takes a lot of hard work and dedication. I learned that if you believe in yourself, it will definitely pay off.”
