As part of their Impact service initiative in November, Salpointe’s thespians partnered with Stories that Soar to produce and perform stories written by the elementary school students at Saints Peter and Paul. Salpointe actors and actresses adapted the stories into skits, assigned characters and developed sets and costumes. The young students enjoyed seeing their own creative stories come alive with the collaborative imagination of Salpointe’s thespians. They performed with joy, enthusiasm, humor and heartfelt sincerity.
In May, one of these skits was selected by Best of Stories That Soar to perform alongside a collection of all their favorite stories from this year’s productions. Salpointe’s Theater Troupe performed “The Butterfly Story” written by Saints Peter and Paul’s Scarlett Jaida. Directed by Chloe Maki, the cast included Isabel Finley, Matt Jbara, Chloe Maki, Sean Meixner, Tommy Irish, Konno Roll, Katie Mae Callahan, Aidan Bronstein and Evy Ramos.
They had the opportunity to perform at the Fox Theatre and took the stage with Stories That Soar’s professional actors in front of a capacity crowd.
