Teaching by Day, Acting by Night

Imagine this. You teach first and second graders all day long. So what would you choose to do after being "on" all day in the classroom?

Probably not what Primary B teacher Marisa Block has chosen to do for the past several months. Marisa has been at rehearsals for the upcoming performances of Men Are Dogs, a comedy opening at Old Academy Players on April 21. Come on out and see her in the role of Jane!

According the the Old Academy Players website, Marisa's "favorite past roles include Maria in Twelfth Night, Gloria in Boeing Boeing, and Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Old Academy Players); Violet Beauregard in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Plays and Players Theater); and Edward Farpis, the Derelict, in her [TPS] fourth grade production of Revenge of the Space Pandas (or Binky Rudich and the Two-Speed Clock)."
