'Pirates!' take over Kingsbury Elementary for spring musical


Kingsbury Elementary School saved the best PTA meeting for last. This year's spring musical titled "Pirates!" was a show-stopper.

The set was designed by art teacher Sylvester Hickmon and featured an enormous pirate ship that engulfed the entire stage. It included a deck with cannons, the Jolly Roger and even a brig and plank to walk.

More than 60 children including singers and dancers performed for more than 35 minutes, enthralling the audience with their well-rehearsed lyrics and prose.

The group is named the King's Court Players, and they are under the direction of Alyssa Gibbs, Michelle Snyder and Ashley Summer.

Libby Singleton from Miss Libby's School of Dance once again returned to Kingsbury to collaborate with the troupe to choreograph the elite dances for each song.
