PTA sponsors troupe's performance

February 06, 2007

BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Elementary School PTA recently sponsored a Character Counts assembly designed especially for younger students and performed by a traveling troupe called Primary Focus.

The fast-paced presentation was a musical journey through the eyes of its starring character, Renee, who was given an important homework assignment by her teacher to write an essay on the topic of planning her life.

As she fell asleep thinking about her assignment, her dream came to life as she took those first steps toward her future and realized that in order to be the person she wanted to ultimately become, she first had to meet some interesting friends along the way who helped her in her quest to become a person of character.

During her adventure, she met Tina Trustworthy and a super hero named Captain Caring, complete with cape and full costume who flew through the air.

A famous rock star, Rockin' Responsibility, was also encountered along with a whimsical good-natured maiden known as the Fairness Pixie.

A stern drill instructor known as Sergeant Citizenship assumed command and then everybody's engines got revved up for the NASCAR race sequence, which featured a song, "Racing Respect," complete with thunderous engines, squealing brakes and metal- crashing sound effects.

This assembly presentation was designed to provide elementary children with positive choice-making principles and role models as performed by the cast.
