Pippin!

SOF’s circus-inspired production of Pippin featured an acrobatic troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player played by senior Bahiya Craig.  The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin (senior Xavier Moll), a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life.  The show played May 10, 11, and 12 and featured dancers, actors, and singers in grades 6-12.  SOF students were also involved in set building and designing, stage managing, lighting and sound design, and live orchestra.

SOF Trip to China

13 School of the Future high school students traveled to China over spring break. Students explored Beijing, Xi’An, Shanghai, and Hong Kong! Students visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City (where some met Heidi Klum!), the Great Wall of China, the Temple of Heaven Park, the Terra-Cotta army, Shanghai World Financial center, Aberdeen Fishing Village, Repulse Bay,  Victoria Peak, and Lantau Island among many other places. They also enjoyed the local cuisine, a Kung Fu and acrobatics show, took a bike ride on the Ancient City wall in Xi’an, a dragon boat ride, took a Tai Chi class, and a rickshaw ride.  It was a wonderful experience of the unique culture and history of China and Hong Kong.  Here are some great photos from the trip.
