Each weekend night as we dressed to go out Story Theatre played, and I enjoyed it as much and more than our young sons. At the time I taught 2nd grade in a suburban school in CT where creativity was encouraged and supported. The 3 teachers at this grade level had to present a theater production each year. We decided to do a unit on Folktales. Each class chose a tale to perform each in a different style. My class chose "The Cat in the Hat". I can't recall the other 2 choices. Working on this production changed my life for the better. With the teamwork of teaches, parents and staff along with the Beatles and John Denver's "Sun" songs and wonderful use of the stage, the second grades took the prize for that year. It was a fantastic experience for all concerned. A wonderful actress from the neighborhood attended and loved it. We had an "overflow" audience.
All this happened because of Story Theatre. A few year's later I left teaching and joined MtV Networks at its beginning and enjoyed 20 years in the industry. Thank you, Paul Sills and everyone connected to this great show!
