The children of Milepost 1 put on a grand performance this holiday season in the stage production of “Bertie’s Christmas Play.” Bertie is a dinosaur whose only Christmas wish is to have a part in his school nativity play. He is cheered on by his friends and family around the world, who chat with him via Skype from places like Hawaii, China, Egypt, and Norway. They send their support and encouragement to Bertie as he tries over and over again to win a role in the show. But try as he might, Bertie just can’t get it right.
Bertie the dinosaur auditions for such roles as an angel, a shepherd, a wise man, and even a sheep! But each time the part goes to someone else. But Bertie perseveres, and finally, when he tries for the role of ‘star’… he gets the part!
Milepost 1 students showed off their singing and dancing skills in an impressive production that put everyone in the holiday spirit! The festive show was enjoyed by parents, all BIS students, and the Year 1 and Year 2 Community Partners from Thien Phuc Home and Anh Minh School. Well done, boys and girls! You are all stars!
