Tall Tales and Heros

The Columbia County Youth Theatre Performance Company visited MED on February 11 to perform their show Tall Tales and Heroes for our students in grades K-3. This 45-minute musical review introduced students to some legends from American folklore and the character traits that make someone a “hero.” The cast (which includes students from CMS and CHS) enacted some larger-than-life stories about historical figures both real and imagined, including folks like Molly Pitcher, Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Calamity Jane, Pecos Bill, Davy Crockett, and others. Their performance at MED was made possible by a grant from the Chatham Education Foundation of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
