Christchurch Students Rock
|The Seahorse Beatles performing “I Want to Hold Your Hand” had the girls squealing and reaching out to the famous Liverpool performers of the 1960s at the “Rockin’ the Rappahannock . . . a Sixties Revue” musical last week at Christchurch School.|
Through the school’s signature Great Journeys curriculum, Christchurch School students learn to examine their world, both local and globally. They learn to make connections using skills they develop in the classroom. In writing the original musical production “Rockin’ the Rappahannock . . . a Sixties Revue” students were challenged to use critical thinking and research skills to understand and analyze the intersection of music with political, scientific and social milestones of the 1960s. Students wrote a script and selected music to best represent a decade and its events that shaped who we are, today, as a society.
“The results were spectacular. No detail was overlooked, from original film footage backgrounds to vintage art; from inspired costumes to the iconic pixie sticks, Funyuns and Coca Cola served as refreshments,” said an event spokesperson.
