— The second graders at Damascus School brought the house down Thursday night, performing in the musical, "Go Fish."
The story took place in the ocean.
A little Tiger Shark played by Michael Murphy wanted to be friends with everyone. The ocean animals thought he was crazy.
But he meets a bunch of friends who also have their quirks: a seven legged octopus (Madison O'Brien), an angel fish (Kate Dowling), a clown fish who isn't funny (Xander Nelson), a blow fish with allergies (Owen Hawley), a tuna who can't carry a tune (Christian Krasniak), a star fish who can't get an acting role (Alyssa Babcock) and a needlefish (Trent Gombita).
It was the great white shark played by Josh Johannes that reminded them that it takes all kinds of fish to make the ocean the beautiful place that it is, just the way it takes all kinds of people to make the world full of harmony and color.
The message put forth by this play was it is our differences that make us unique and special.
The play was directed by Michelle Walsh and Judy Redick, second grade teachers and Jess McDonough, music teacher.
