Actors and robotics engineers at work after school
Thursday, April 20, 2017
 
After dismissal this afternoon, fourth grader were blocking scenes for the spring musical.
 
 

The third and fourth grade production, Frog and Toad, debuts in mid-May.
 
 

Down the hall, members of the third and fourth grade robotics club was beginning to program with iPads and the WeDo LEGO kits.
 
 

Their big moment comes Saturday, June 3rd, when Gordon hosts the first-ever Rhode Island LEGO robotics expo for children age six to ten.
 
 


And over by the Commons, eighth graders were doing a table reading of a brand-new full-length play.
 
 

The playwright, Brad Wilson, first came to Gordon through Gordon’s partnership with the Brown University / Trinity Rep MFA Program. The third and fourth grade produced his musical, Little Big State, last winter. When Wilson wanted to hear teenage voices read his new script, Hollow Bones, he knew he could find talented, thoughtful actors at Gordon.

Congratulations to Gordon parent Deb Salem Smith, whose new comedy Faithful Cheaters has its final preview tonight at Trinity Rep. The cast includes Mauro Hantman, another Gordon parent. Salem Smith and Hantman have both contributed to Gordon’s continually growing partnership with Trinity Rep, which continues this June at Gordon Summer Theater. read the feature on Faithful Cheaters in today's Providence Journal
