Kinsella’s 6th – 8th Grade Students Stage “Pandora’s Fire”
Congratulations to Kinsella Magnet School of Performing Arts (PK-Grade 8) for a successful week of performances! Students in 6th through 8th grade performed the play, “Pandora’s Fire,” which is inspired by the Greek myth, “Pandora’s Box.” Students also played important roles backstage, including designing pieces for the set, managing the lights, and more. Kinsella’s Drama teacher, Ms. Katie O’Grady, did an excellent job leading and directing the students.
“Pandora’s Fire” by Judith Walsh White and directed by Katie O’Grady showcases her 6th-8th grade middle school students at RJ Kinsella Magnet School. The play is taken from the Greek myth, Pandora’s Box and it centers around Zeus, god of the sky, who wants to punish Promethesus for stealing his fire to help the mortals.
As punishment, Zeus sends Hermes, the messenger god, with a large box stating DO NOT OPEN. If you received a box with a message stating DO NOT OPEN, would curiosity get the best of you?
