SFAHS Theatre presents Big Fish
Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that’s richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

Class Spotlight: In Their Poetry Era
5th-grade students embarked on a creative journey inspired by the whimsical world of Taylor Swift's "Not-So" Tortured Poets Department. The classroom buzzed with excitement as the young wordsmiths explored the nuances of clever and lighthearted approaches to poetry. Mr. Frost guided the class through the elements of poetic expression, encouraging them to channel their inner Swiftian spirit while experimenting with rhyme, rhythm, and language. The result was a delightful collection of poems showcasing the students' unique voices, demonstrating a newfound appreciation for wordplay and storytelling. The lesson nurtured their literary skills and sparked a love for creative expression in the heart of each budding poet.
