Students present puppet show

Forty first grade students at the Clermont Northeastern Primary School were treated to an entertaining puppet show performed by the CNE High school drama students Jan. 4.

Calling themselves the Imagination Station Puppeteers, the high school drama students created and conceived the puppet show as a way to teach parables and life lessons through various short puppet vignettes.

Drama student T.J. O’Connell, who played a puppet dragon and helped decorate the theater, said that the drama troop really enjoyed the presentation and hopes that their performances are an effective way to educate the first-graders.

“We love performing our skits for them,” he said. “It is light, amusing, fun, and most importantly, an educational experience for students at a very young age.”
