Keeper Of The Tales

Faith Academy Middle School presented "Keeper of the Tales - Stories from 1001 Arabian Nights" by Tim Wright last night.
They are performing again tonight, also.

Janet Templin did an excellent job directing the play along with Lisa Bartels.
The main story is about a blind beggar-sage who is at the Bazaar (market) and tells the Princess stories that are like parables. It was a very good production.

Kirsten played the part of Sayyd - the twin daughter of Yasin, the Devoted Israelite. She was also one of the fruit market vendors at the Bazaar.

Kirsten really enjoys the thespian world (although I had to tell her what a 'thespian' was/is)! She's already talking about going out for next year's school play.

'mother' Khadija

Saad and Sayyd - it was fun to watch these two. Everything
they said and did was in unison.

for supper.
