A high-spirited performance of the musical RATS was presented by Epping Elementary School students in April, under the direction of music teacher Virginia Avery. It is a humorous fairy tale that tells the story of the pied piper. The cast included fifty-five performers and thirty set crew members, from grades 3-5. The set was designed and painted under the direction of art teacher Sarah Boudreau. Special thanks to Mrs. Avery and Mrs. Boudreau for their hard work and dedication to make this show a great success. Many thanks to Sean Avery, Jim and Becky Fainer for contributing sets, props and costumes. Thanks to Epping school administration, staff, volunteers and the community for their support of the EES Arts and Music program.
