Virgin, Graham Evans as Joseph, Holly Adam as the Angel and Wyatt Markovich as Santa
St. Paul students in the first, second and third grades presented their Christmas play in the Parish Activity Center to the usual standing-room-only crowd on Thursday night (December 17, 2009) A "Welcome to the Mall" banner set the stage for the play which noted that shopping is not the real meaning of Christmas. More than a dozen Christmas carols were sung with a finale singing of "You are holy (Prince of Peace}"
Principal Robert Brodbeck in his welcome to those attending noted that we are fortunate at St. Paul to speak of Christmas because in some places you can speak only of a Winter holiday.
Music director Tim Longfellow conducted another beautiful program and received a thank you card signed by all the students. Playing the roles of shoppers to narrate the play theme were Natalie Wammes, Vanessa Sales, Brooke Wightman and Nathan Dort.
Third graders were cast for the speking roles. Lily Gray was the Virgin Mary, Graham Evans was Joseph, Holly Adam was the Angel and Wyatt Markovich was Santa.
Teachers who played guiding roles were Mrs. Suzanne Inglis, first grade; Miss Mary Means, second grade, and Mrs. Jessica Davis, third grade.
