  • Villains in the Gold Field - 2019

    The fourth grade production of Villains in the Gold Field is a true Berkeley Hall melodrama. The show has big laughs, big drama, big romance, and a dastardly villain. Every year, the fourth grade puts on a production that relates to their study of the California Gold Rush. The Gold Rush represents a large part of their spring social studies learning, and it is always a highlight to act out and dress like the time period that forever changed the future of our state. Many, many thanks to Mr. Fontaine for the music and adaptation of the screenplay, Mr. McManus for his selfless work with the kids in Drama, and to alumni parent Cindy Hygate for wonderful choreography.
