Preschool Drama 1984
Preschool Drama: Where the Wild Things Are (Oct 1984)
Since the beginning Newcastle preschool students have acted out children’s literature.
Dramatizing stories has always been a staple of whole child education. Mercer Mayer’s “Where the Wild Things Are” has been a favorite for generations. This vintage photo from 1984 shows Miss Kathleen and Miss Cindy Castleton (Newcastle’s first teacher) working with students in Wild Thing masks. Constructing Wild Thing masks has been an art project at Newcastle for almost three decades. It is still just as fun.
Where the Wild Things Are was made into a feature film in 2009
